In January 2012 Sri Lanka government introduced a new Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) Visa for a short visit to Sri Lanka. Travelers from all over the world can now apply e-visa for Sri Lanka online without having to visit an embassy or consulate. The ETA is an official authorization for a short visit to Sri Lanka and is issued electronically. Tourists can apply online for Sri Lanka ETA which is completely electronic processing online submission and the approval for the same (authority to enter Sri Lanka) will be communicated via email.


The ETA is an official authorization for a short visit to Sri Lanka and is issued electronically. Applicants will receive their visas via email, after filling the application form with the necessary information and once the online credit card payment is completed. The entire process is quick and easy.


Diplomatic and Official passport holders are exempt from ETA processing fee, only when their applications are submitted through the state agencies such as Ministries, Statutory Bodies, Sri Lanka Overseas Missions etc.


The SriLanka electronic visa (evisa-eta) is initially limited to 30 days validity from the date of arrival although it may be extended for up to six (06) months.
