The government benefits from increased efficiencies and transparency in managing the complete process and improved resource utilisation through the launch of the new Sri Lanka E-Visa platform, says VFS Global in Sri Lanka.

Releasing a statement, the company said that the solution is offered through a user-pay model, at no cost to the government and all investments related to technology, infrastructure and staff are borne by the company.

"The total service fee approved by the Cabinet is US$ 18.50 across all visa categories. Payment processing charges and applicable local taxes are in addition to the service fee," the company said.

"VFS Global has experience offering its digital E-Visa platform to 12 governments including Thailand, Dubai, Equatorial Guinea, Azerbaijan, Suriname, amongst others."

VFS Global manages non-judgmental and administrative tasks related to the application process. However, the decision to grant or reject the visa is at the sole discretion of the Department of Immigration and Emigration.
