6 months stay in Sri Lanka

I am planning to goto Sri Lanka for 6 months. Are there any volunteer opportunities available around Kalutara/ Bentota or Galle area ? How hard would it be to get visa for 6 months ?

Thanks

It's not hard. You just have to pay applicable fees and taxes.

Hi there...

If you intend doing ANY work, whether paid or unpaid, you will need a business visa and not a visitors one, keep that in mind..
