Sri Lanka Visa


All visitors to Sri Lanka require a Tourist Visa. It is each individual’s own responsibility to secure a Tourist Visa. 

The Sri Lankan Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) System for Tourist Visas is an official authorization for a short visit to Sri Lanka. Foreign nationals, who intend to visit Sri Lanka for a short stay of up to six months, must obtain an ETA prior to their arrival. The ETA is issued through an on-line system.

Important – The passport details you provide must correspond with the passport you are traveling on to Sri Lanka. If your passport is lost, stolen or replaced before you travel to Sri Lanka, you will be required to re-apply for an ETA visa.

How do I obtain my ETA?

Option 1 – Apply online on the official Sri Lanka government website

If you wish to complete the ETA application independently, you can do so by logging on to the following website:  https://eta.gov.lk/etaslvisa/etaNavServ?payType=1  

The cost of Tourist Visa with Double Entry for 30 days - $35.00
