Check your Exit-Rentry Visa On Web

Dear Friends

In many cases, the passport department has stopped affixing the usual exit/re-entry stamp on passports. They only mention the visa number and the validity of the visa - all jotted down by hand. This could create problems with the airlines while returning from Sri Lanka (or elsewhere), as the counters check the visa at the time of check-in.

To avoid this problem, go the Ministry of Interior website: And then:

  1. Select English
  2. Select E-service
  3. Select passports
  4. Select Query exit/re-entry visa
  5. Enter Iqama number (family Iqama number is mentioned in the passport) In the same window enter passport number or visa number
  6. Another window will open up showing all the details of your exit/re-entry visa.
  7. Print this and carry with you. You can show this document if the airline counter questions your visa

— Incidentally you can also view other details like traffic violations, visit visa application, etc. on this site.
