Having considered the spread of Covid-19 virus in the
country, the validity period of all types of Visas issued to all foreigners who
are currently residing in Sri Lanka had been extended till 11th June 2020 and
advised them to pay the relevant visa fee and get the visa endorsed in the
Passport by securing an appointment on or before 11th June 2020.
However, the Department is observed that, most of the foreigners currently staying in
Sri Lanka are unable to leave so far due to the closure of the Airports in many
countries and as the number is very high; many of them unable to secure an
appointment via the above system before 11th June 2020.
Considering the aforementioned circumstances, it is
decided to extend the validity period of all types of Visas for another period
of 30 days with effect from 11th June 2020 to 11th July 2020 to allow all the
foreigners to regularize their visas accordingly.
