I am a CFA candidate from India, scheduled to take exam in SL.
I have a couple of queries regarding the Visa and stay option.
1. The exam would be held on Sep 7 (Sunday) @ PIM Auditorium, Lesley Rangala Mawatha.
a> How far is this place from the airport.
b> I propose to stay only on 6th Night in SL. Any decent 3/4 star city hotels near this place. And, the distance from hotel to the airport and PIM.
c> epltThe radio cabs seem too exorbitant to me. Any cheaper, safer mode of transport available.
2. Heard that Visa-on-arrival is the norm for Indians. I would be there for 2 days, 6th and 7th Dec. Would this be covered under the Visa-on-arrival where the purpose is not tourism but taking CFA exam.
Please reply to the above ASAP, as I need to get the bookings done in time. Any help, much appreciated!
