Consular Services fees worldwide are established in U.S. dollars (USD). The Financial Management Centre at the U.S. Embassy in Colombo determines an official exchange rate for payments made in Sri Lankan Rupees (LKR). All fees may be subject to change without notice and are non-refundable.

Please note that per Central Bank of Sri Lanka requirements, the Embassy is unable to accept mutilated, altered or defaced currency notes as payment for services.  Please check that you have exact change and that the currency meet these requirements.  For more information, visit the Central Bank website FAQs.

The Consular exchange rate as of August 02, 2023 is set at LKR 340 to USD 1.
