Can I convert my Philippine Driving License to Sri Lanka driving License? I am an expat and holding a resident visa and would like to secure a driving license to be able to drive here in Sri Lanka.

    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.

Hello Adil,

I understand your concern regarding your health. Rather than getting 2nd hand information on the internet, I think you should best speak to the nephrology/renal units at various Sri Lankan hospitals and obtain the information straight from the horse’s mouth. You could try the state run National Hospital of Sri Lanka (telephone: 94-11-2691111) – where locals are treated free of charge, I don’t know how it is for foreigners. Or else there are several private hospitals such as Lanka Hospitals, Asiri, Nawaloka and Durdans. You could look up their phone numbers online and call them directly.

No. She is a clinical psychologist, not a psychiatrist. But she will refer patients to a psychiatrist if medication is needed.
