Govt. removes visa fees for children
The government announced today that visa fees for children under 12 years of age who visit the country will be removed.
Cabinet spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said that the decision was taken based on a proposal submitted by President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
He told reporters at the weekly cabinet press briefing that the President feels the move would be very much favorable for Sri Lanka as it would boos visits by foreigners to the island with their children.
