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.
