Malaysia and Thailand increases visa fees

The Malaysian entry visa fee has been increased by Rs. 900 for Sri Lankans again. The company which handles the Malaysian visa says that this was due to VAT been imposed by the government on them. The Malaysian visa which was earlier issued by the High Commission was around Rs.600 and as soon as it was given to the private company the fee increased to Rs. 4,600.

Later they also requested Sri Lankans to obtain traveller’s cheques to the value of Rs. 75,000 and several other documentation, similar to requirements of a European Embassy, making the traveller seek alternative destinations to travel.

Meanwhile the Royal Thai Embassy in Colombo will also be increasing their visa fee from July I due to the fluctuation of currency. The Royal Thai Embassy is more flexible with issuing visas. “Embassy has to extend the period of visa issuance to 5 working days from February 15,2016 due to additional handling of applications and also certain travel agencies and individuals failing to fill all required details in the visa application forms and also forwarding bogus documents.”

Generally, there are 300 to 350 applications per day which are submitted through individuals and travel agencies. As for the peak season the number of applications will drastically increase up to 500 to 600 per day. The Embassy emphasised that the submission of fake documents is a crime against the Embassy which is a government office and the Embassy will immediately stop issuing visas to travel agencies or individuals who submit fake documents to the Embassy. Indonesia has extended a free visa on arrival policy for Sri Lankans from late April.

SriLankan Airline New Business Strategies of MRO and Domestic Flight services

SriLankan Airlines will negotiate with an Asian based air service company to begin a Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) centre at the Mattala airport in Hambatota.

SriLankan Airlines Chairman Ajith Dias states proposal for an MRO at the Mattala international airport was in the pipeline for several years but it never got off. We are now in talks with an Asian counterpart to get this project of the ground at least now and this MRO will help the bottom line of the airline to a great extent as they could harness big business due to SriLankan Engineering’s track record.

He further said Srilankan Airlines are going to re-evaluate to begin domestic operations next year by acquire two 40 seater aircraft for this operation and hope to operate regular flights to selected domestic airports out of total 12 domestic airports in Sri Lanka. and with increased tourism we see great potential in this project.

Commenting on the re fleeting of the airline by the end of this year they will have seven new aircraft increasing the total fleet to 20. In the next two years we will get eight more. Subsequently all ageing A340 aircraft will be retired and Sri Lankan will have a fleet less than 3 years of age. All these aircrafts will be for SriLankan Airlines and not for Mihin.

With the new aircraft the national carrier will add more frequencies to key destinations. The airline may not look at new routes but will increase frequencies to existing destinations that include China, London and India.
