New members of the Sri Lanka forum, introduce yourself here – 2017

I'm kelsey. I'm currently an ESL teacher in S. Korea and I'll likely be moving to Sri Lanka in April or August depending on when my work ends here. I'll likely first go as a student for a year to study Sinhalese before my fiance (who is Sri Lankan) and I marry some time after that. He must return to Sri Lanka by July (when his Korean visa expires). We aren't sure where we'll live yet. My fiance has said when we're both there we'll look around and figure out what's best. So I'm currently preparing by doing general research online.

Hi,

UK ex-pats living in Egypt, intending to visit Sri Lanka for a month early next year.

Currently looking at February which, from my research, means that the northeast/east of the island is out of bounds for us (we don't do monsoons).

Would love to interact with Elephants, Whales and Turtles, see the sights that are worth seeing, but mostly relax by the sea and eat lots of food. We're planning to be there about 4 weeks, would like to see the best of what the island has to offer, whilst also enjoying the food and culture, on the cheap.  The more we save on accommodation and trips, the more we can tip :P

Any advice appreciated, my family roots are based in Sri Lanka but I've not managed to visit yet.

hello everyone,
i will go to Sri lanka for working in a construction project end of the september. i will live in there for min 2 years.

Hello everyone, it's Ayan. Just joined expat.com. I enjoy being around different type of peoples all over the World. I've been living in Sri Lanka for more than one year. Such a wonderful country. Nature has been decorated with natural beauty. Places like Nuwarailiya and Kandy gives rest to eyes. It's been a year now that I'm here so I knows little extra about the tradition, culture, daily life and society. I'm residence visa holder. But the thing that annoys me is I'm jobless here. I'm trying everywhere but no response. I would like to discuss it here can someone help me to get a job for me. Whatever the job doesn't matter. Juat want to get foot in the door. Thanks

Hi There..:)

My name is Divya & I'm from Malaysia. I have been to Sri Lanka twice and its amazing, and I've decided to stay in Sri Lanka a little longer.  I'm in the midst of applying to study/work in Nawala, Sri Lanka this December. 

Would like to hear from fellow Malaysians, maybe a little help on the application process. So far I have only done my application for the course, and they will be helping me with the visa application. and I have been asked to give a cert of good conduct too (not sure if its necessary) and its currently in process.

If there is any information that would be helpful for my move to Sri lanka, please do share them here.

Can't wait for my new start in Sri lanka. Hope to have a wonderful experience again.
