New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

Sri Lanka is a lush, tropical island paradise, known to ancient Greek mariners as Taprobane. Arab traders called it Serendib - hence the word "serendipity", meaning discovery by happy accident. It was famously described by Marco Polo as "undoubtedly the finest island of its size in the world". With fabulously flavoursome food and a vast array of culturally rich experiences to delve into, Sri Lanka promises to be one of your best-loved travel destinations.

This is an environmentally diverse country, with 9 World Heritage Sites (the oldest dating back to the 3rd century BC), 86 species of mammals (including elephants and leopards), more than 400 bird species, a colourful array of flowering plants and trees, a Hill Country famous for tea, and 14 national parks.

Visa Information

Sri Lanka

You will need a visa to enter Sri Lanka. You can get a short stay visa online at Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). Tourist visas are normally issued for a maximum period of 30 days. Although it’s still possible to get a tourist visa on arrival, it’s better to get one before you travel. If you arrive in Sri Lanka without a visa, you could face delays. For the most up-to-date advice on visas check with the Sri Lankan High Commission in the UK. If you experience any difficulty with the ETA System, or if you’re travelling for paid or unpaid work, you should get a visa from the Sri Lankan High Commission before you travel.

Overstaying your visa will attract a fine and possible detention and deportation. If you have overstayed your visa, you must report to the Department of Immigration & Emigration

Visas on arrival have been suspended for all travellers arriving from Sierra Leone and Guinea.

Passport validity
Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry to Sri Lanka.
