A ferry service between India and Sri Lanka will be launched soon, India’s High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Ashok K. Kantha said today after opening an Indian visa office in Jaffna.
The ferry service will connect Thalaimannar in northern Sri Lanka and Rameshwaran in Tamil Nadu but the envoy did not give a time frame as to when the ferry service will be launched.
Meanwhile with the opening of the visa office in Jaffna, Sri Lankans applying for a visa from Jaffna could obtain their visas within three working days. The applications will be processed at the Indian High Commission in Colombo and the visas will be dispatched to Jaffna. (Daily Mirror online)
