Temporary resident visas will be issued to foreigners, who invest a minimum of US$300,000 in Sri Lanka, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said today.

This move is in line with a 2016 Budget proposal to grant resident visas to foreigners who bring in a large amount of foreign exchange into the country.

    Ahmed Thursday, 12 January 2017 04:34 PM

    why should someone invest $300 000 in sri lanka when countries like malaysia provide 10 year visas for expats who deposit less than half the amount of money than this ?

    BLAIR Thursday, 12 January 2017 04:38 PM

    Mr minister, please be specific on areas of investments.

    Deshapriya Thursday, 12 January 2017 04:44 PM

    TonySri Lanka ain't Trump Country Montana bro. People of all faiths live literally side-by-side. You obviously haven't been here

    Sri Lankan currency is fast depreciating, only a fool will come and invest here.

    Bernard Thursday, 12 January 2017 05:59 PM

    This and of course a "country first" government is the reason why Malaysia became so great. They knew how to attract foreign investors. A temporary resident visa will not be attractive enough.
