    No ‘conversion’s are allowed.
    If you are already in Sri Lanka, you can apply instead for a new Sri Lankan driving licence. Since you are an expat and are holding a resident visa, this should pose no problem.
    Or else, you could apply for an international driving licence.
    Best of Luck.

    You should have applied for an International Drivers License here so that you can drive wherever you are on the planet.

    We tried to contact relevant institutions to get a detailed and reliable answer. But Only Lanka Automobile Automobile Association gave a good answer. According to them they will issue a transient license (1 year ) when you submit your current license from your resident country. Hope this would help.

Dr Jayasinghe FUE hair clinic


In our clinic we have performed FUE hair transplants every day for the past 5 years. Anyone can visit and observe a hair transplant procedure. We have many thousands of satisfied clients.
All our clients know my number (0094) 715270381 works 9am to 9pm daily. Anyone can contact me at any time or visit the clinic to discuss any matter regarding hair transplants. We do not advertise extensively as most referrals are from clients with excellent results recommending us to their friends who have hair loss.

We are the lowest cost provider of hair transplants. We perform FUE from Rs 50,000. We do not charge large amounts because we know that even Rs 50,000 is a lot of money for most people in this country. We are aware that we are a big threat to other hair transplant companies. We also know that they use the internet to spread lies about us. If our success is a problem for other hair transplant clinics who charge many lakhs of rupees for re planting hair so be it. Everyone knows we are number one in Sri Lanka for hair transplants.

So in summary Abin or who ever you are, do not pretend to be one of our clients and spread lies about us here. If you were a real client why is it you have not given your real name or contact details. And why have you not come to see me to complain? It is because you are a complete fraud from one of our rivals afraid of competition from us as we are the lowest cost and best in the hair industry here.
