Sri Lanka Tourist Visa

The Ministry of External Affairs of Sri Lanka has implemented a new online visa facility, enabling travelers to obtain visas electronically from any part of the world. Since its launch on January 2012, more than 3,000 travelers have applied for the visa on a daily basis. The new Sri Lanka visa is issued in the form of an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA), which has a six month validity period, thus making trip planning easier for travelers who wish to visit Sri Lanka.

Visa applications can be done completely online. Travelers are not required to visit the Sri Lankan embassy nor send in their passports. Once online visa applications are approved, applicants will receive their visa by email, which is recognized by all airlines traveling inbound to Sri Lanka and provided that all your travel documents are in order, you should have no trouble boarding your flight to Sri Lanka.

What Customers Say

Feedback from Farah Khalid, Malaysia, Sri Lanka visa customer

I applied for my Sri Lankan tourist visa through Evisa Asia. It was so fuss free that I don't see why anyone should not use Evisa Asia. Application process was easy and very user friendly and the visa was ready by 24 hours. Amazing service! - Farah Khalid, Malaysia

I want to thank Evisa Asia very much for the excellent support for the service getting the visa for Sri Lanka in February 2014. It is worth the expenses and saves significant administrative time. I will recommend your service - Ruediger Schott, Germany
