How to pay for your visa

Visa fee payment should be made using a "Bank Draft" made payable to the Australian High Commission . Visa fees must be in Sri Lankan rupees and drawn against a Sri Lankan bank.

NB - ID photos that have been digitally enhanced or altered to improve or change appearance or remove distinguishing features are not acceptable.
