The government has decided to exempt transit passengers and children less than 12 from having to pay visa fees, Cabinet spokesman and Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said today
This was based on a proposal by President Mahinda Rajapaksa to the cabinet. It states that visa fees would be waived for children less than 12 years of age transit passengers who stay in the country up to 48 hours.
This move would be much favourable to Sri Lanka, as this system would boost visits by foreigners with children. (SAJ)
