I am a French guy who is stuck in Sri Lanka because I did not know I needed transit Visa to go in South America.

I already miss my first flight and I am waiting in one guesthouse to have my C1 visa granted.

The first one was made the 6 February and I made an another one (because no reply and I was hurry) the 8 February.

The problem is also my bank card was stolen in hostel one week ago. So I just have some cash.

Anyway, I need every information I can get about the reason why is so long. I mean I traveled in so many country and even a one year visa in Australia or New Zealand was quicker.

Please can you tell me you many times I have to wait? What is your experience?

Thank you
