Hi all, we were wondering if anybody has had experience of dream home visa. We're not sure what the immigration dept do about a gap between when the 30 day tourist visa expires, and the dream home visa is granted. I understand it takes about 2 weeks to get dream home visa set up. We have been delayed by the current situation in Sri Lanka. Please do not respond with offers to get visa easy way. We have everything in place. Thank you
Right now the situation is confusing. Calling /emailing Immigration was always useless. They don't answer. However, they do know what your visa limit is on that tourist visa and they can grant you the MDH visa in one go if you have your cash to pay the tax, passports, snaps and a glue stick. The back office staff is incredible there (the ladies) . The Commissioner man is a jerk and gives every single person that enters his office a hard time. He enjoys yelling " you go back to your country" for what ever he is demanding. The best way to handle him is not to speak except in brief answers. The lady Commissioner is great. If you go to get business done,,,GO EARLY. Be polite. Best of Luck. Enjoy the Golden Island.
