Hello! I live currently in Cambodia for 3 years, but here getting too many chinese and the whole conditions become very bad. So I'm looking to move somewhere and I think the Sri Lanka is a great place because I love buddhism and atmosphere also it fits my $.

So the main question is how can I move? Is it possible to take 90 days Visa online - come - rent appartments long term - extend 90 days more and do visa run every 180 days? Do I have 99% sure that my visa will be renewed and that I will let to enter the country after visa run so I can leave main staff in the appartments?

Many thanks for the answers.

Hi,
In answer to your visa question.
You can apply for 30 day visa online, or depending on your hair me country get visa on entry. You have to go to immigration dept to extend to 90 days, then again to extend for a further 90 days. After this you must leave the country for a period of time. It is not specified how long, but I think less than 6 months is frowned upon, although we have left for 3 months then returned, but this is when immigration started to give us a hard time. You really don't want to P those guys off. So, depends on your financial situation. We ended up with resident visa, as they were reluctant to keep renewing our tourist visa. Although the situation in the country is different now since the Easter bombs. They will be grateful to have you I'm sure. Sorry for such a long response. Always happy to help.
