How and why we moved to Sri Lanka …
Moving to Sri Lanka we have matured very quickly.
Due to the fact that in Sri Lanka at that time there was an opportunity to purchase 100 percent ownership of land and other real estate for a foreigner, it was very interesting for us. The bulk of South-East and South Asia does not give such an opportunity, the countries with more developed infrastructure had an expensive entrance ticket. Either in the countries of this region there was a crisis that made the prospect of investing in these countries unclear … At the time of the move to Sri Lanka it was clear that the Asian countries would be the locomotive of growth, and the country with the option of acquiring land ownership without local participation is the most promising for moving and related investments. Also significant role was played by the fact that in Sri Lanka there is the possibility of establishing a company and doing business with a foreigner. Also an attractive point is that under certain investment conditions it is possible to get a 5-year tax holiday. Sri Lanka is desperate for investment, the civil war ended only 4 years ago, and after the tsunami nine years have passed. Obviously the progressive development of projects started here in recent years, large and small hotels are being built on the coast, there are still many undeveloped, almost wild places even on the most developed and unaffected southern coast. On the east coast of Sri Lanka, the normal situation is that the deer go around the city center and take food from the hands of tourists. At the moment in Sri Lanka came into force the law prohibiting the direct sale of land to foreigners, in the light of the fact that the country, as it was written above, needs investments, the government is interested in doing business on the land acquired. The main goal is to increase the tourist flow by attracting responsible investors interested in creating and developing, obviously lame here, the tourist infrastructure.
Moving to Sri Lanka and visa issues.
There is a possibility of obtaining the following visas to Sri Lanka:
1.Turistic visa to Sri Lanka & # 8212; doing business on it is impossible and irresponsible. This is the first and most terrible mistake of investors and grief-businessmen when moving to Sri Lanka – to start building a business having received only a tourist visa. In this case, everything is lost, but before you lose everything, you are waiting … prison, for a few days or even for a month. Prisons in Sri Lanka like a garage, in which it is hot and humid, and when you start going crazy and resenting in Russian, you can be beaten. As a variant of the prison, you can be placed in a special village for immigrants and fined heavily. The Sri Lanka visa regime is not strongly recommended to be violated.
2. Resident visa in Sri Lanka. Issued for a period of one year. There are several options for a resident visa, depending on the purpose of stay in the country.
2.1. Business visa to Sri Lanka is issued in the case of the establishment of the company and justified by the necessity of your presence to create or conduct business.
2.2. Guardian visa in Sri Lanka & # 8212; visa accompanying. A visa is issued if your children study at a local school. By the way, I dare say, education in Sri Lanka is very decent even in connection with the fact that in some colleges the directors and the main staff of foreign teachers have extensive experience in educational activities in the UK and other countries.
2.3. Retirement visa in Sri Lanka & # 8212; is available from 55 years on condition of a confirmed income of at least a thousand dollars a month.
2.4. Study visa for Sri Lanka & # 8212; accordingly, is given to the students, it is also necessary to confirm the availability of funds on the account, sufficient to pay for tuition and residence.
2.5. Medical visa in Sri Lanka is provided with a contract with an accredited medical institution. In Sri Lanka, there is a network of state Ayurveda clinics that deal with these issues.
3. Working visas to Sri Lanka. A work visa is also a resident visa, only it is issued if you are involved in a BOI project – the Sri Lanka Investment Council Project.
It should be noted that every visa is written with what it was issued for. Resident (any) visa gives the opportunity to rent a house, buy transport. Tourist gives only the opportunity to sunbathe on the beach and preferably with your hands folded on your chest.
Business visa allows you to organize business in Sri Lanka, and a working visa – to work. We will be very pleased to advise you on obtaining the necessary work visa. Please contact [email protected] about obtaining working, resident and tourist visas to Sri Lanka.
