A state of emergency is still ongoing in Sri Lanka due to the terrorist attack that happened in the last weeks of April. Therefore, the rules and regulation related to immigration have been reinforced.

However, Sri Lankan’s immigration controller agreed that convenient ways to obtain the visa will be established for Maldivian residents in Srilanka.

Currently, there are around more than 15,000 Maldivians living in Sri Lanka. But due to the bombing in April, a lot of Maldivian families have relocated back to their home country.
