No change to visa policy to Sri Lankans: US

The US Embassy in Colombo today denied the reports of US changing its visa policy towards Sri Lankan citizens.

In a tweet, the embassy said “US visa policy in regards to Sri Lanka has not been changed. Rumors to the contrary are false,”

The embassy requested Sri Lankans to reach the webpage: http://www.ustraveldocs.com/lk/lk-niv-visaapply.asp for more information.

A news article published on a website recently reported that US President Donald Trump had signed a visa-free travel policy for Sri Lanka.

The article said President Trump has signed the executive order to allow all Sri Lanka nationals travel to the United States without visas.

    No surprise here. Somebody just had some fun in the web. He/she must be laughing. Not a good thing though.

    So much fake news out there. Whoever did this I wonder what the intention was. Trump doesn't care about Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan news outlets should do some research before publishing.

    Yes but no visas for a certain faith because they will end up a new exhibit in the made in USA holocaust museum. What a way to make America great again!

    Worse place to go...DPRK has already positioned its deadly arsenal of Missiles reaching key cities of USA.So our Banana Republic is 1000000 times better.

    I do hope that the no change in visa policy will be backed by a spirit of welcome at the Air Port for traveling to a country we seek a sense of welcome from the word go to make our stay a pleasant one ..not confusion as influenced by Trump Policy of being selective ...The average person in US is such a hospitable person and the security personnel were so polite and caring on the streets of that dream city of New York ..
