June 11, 2013 (LBO) – Applicants from Sri Lanka who had recently travelled to some North American, European and Pacific countries could apply for a fast track visa, the UK High Commission (embassy) in Colombo said. From June 24, Sri Lankans who had travelled “without difficulty” to the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand or a Schengen country within the last five years could apply for a ‘fast track’ visa service where an appointment can be booked online and documents returned within five days.

The service, which is not available for student visas, will have an additional fee of 10,000 rupees. .
