Sometimes the airlines ask about a ticket out of India on departure from Sri Lanka to India. I could never figure why..

applying for a new indian tourist visa in sri lanka

Hello,

I got a tourist visa for 6 months for India on my german passport. I wanted to ask if it is still possible to apply for another tourist visa in Colombo? If yes, for how long is it valid?

Thank you very much

To my understanding it is the same, as applications in Kandy are sent to Colombo for approval anyway... Takes a few days longer there
Correct me if I'm wring...

Where did this "understanding" come from?

seems like Sri Lanka now has the new visa regime:

Visa Fees for UK nationals for Tourist and Research visa
S.No. Type of Visa Visa Fee in SLR
1 Tourist Visa up to One Year (Single / Multiple) 25670.00
2 Tourist Visa more than one year up to five years (Multiple) 76700.00
3 Research visa upto 3 yrs or duration of course whichever is less 36290.00
There is no such thing as art, the best is high craft - the rest is just flim-flam

Wow sounds luxurious
Anyone knows if those rumored new 5yr tourist visas would have some sort of "single visit not to exceed xx days" stamp on them?

Most likely, you won't be allowed to stay for 1,825 (5 x 365) days at a stretch. It'll be stamped 180 days, max, each stay, most likely.

Don't get greedy.

180 days is the expected maximum stay on a tourist visa, but there are various reasons why a shorter maximum stay might be imposed. One of those reasons might be issue of visa to non-resident of a near-to-India visa-hop-popular country?

MAY 2017 - CHANGES TO TOURIST VISA from SRI LANKA?

Hey!
A friend mentioned a friend who was talking about changes to Indian tourist visa rules.

Have there been any recent changes to tourist visa issue from Sri Lanka, does anyone know? I'm Australian. I got a 6 month visa there a year ago...

Thanks for any input..

Last month i emailed IVS global. On their website i saw the availability of 1 and 5 year tourist visa's for non-Srilankan nationals. I asked if they could clarify how many days people are allowed to stay on these visa's per visit. But they only said they "cannot advice on such things" and that they only collect documents for the visa. A bit strange though. For people within the Netherlands it's 3 months, in the US 6 months (if nothing has changed). So why would it not be clear for Sri Lanka also?

I just found this on the website of the Indian embassy in Sri Lanka:

"Visa applications of non-resident foreign nationals will be entertained for short term Tourist visa ( 3 month/single entry ). They are advised to obtain long term Tourist visas and other categories of visas from the country of their origin ."

6 months in Colombo

I just picked up my new Indian visa. 6 months in Colombo. German passport with previous Indian visa. I was out of India though for 7 months. An American i met there got also a 6 months visa and he just did it back to back, down from India 10 days ago, and back tonite with a new 6 month visa.
Takes 7 working days. Cost are now - Oct 2017 - nearly 100 Euros. Not cheap. But at least you get 6 months unlike in Nepal these days or elsewhere.
Goes pretty quick on each visit. The office did not seem very busy and all gets done pretty fast and friendly.
