I as a Sri Lankan can never get a visa granted, to USA,Canada, Europe, Australia or New Zealand, if I say I am going to travel by Couch-surfing. I have to show confirmed return Air ticket, hotel bookings, submit travel itinerary, Big amount of money in bank account, and so many other documents and still will not get a visa approved, nor the 150/200 US$ I paid for Visa fee returned.
But any foreigner can arrive at Sri Lankan Airport will be granted on arrival visa for 30 days for free.
Why is this Step- Motherly treatment? Is tourism a one way process? Only westerners can travel Not the Sri Lankans? Are we Untouchables?
