On the basis of reciprocity, citizens of The Republic of Singapore, The Republic of Maldives and The Republic of Seychelles are exempt from the requirement of obtaining ETA to visit Sri Lanka.

The simplest and quickest way to apply for a Sri Lanka ETA Visa is to make an online application with the Sri Lanka ETA visa application form.

Business visa with Multiple Entry for 30 days costs $40

Once an ETA visa to Sri Lanka has been obtained, visa holders must be able to demonstrate the following requirements at point of entry into Sri Lanka:

  • A passport valid for a minimum period of six months;
