What is a visa for Sri Lanka?

All travelers with Dutch and Belgian nationality must have a visa to travel in Sri Lanka. If travelers plan to stay in Sri Lanka for business or tourism, less than 30 days, the e-visa, also known as ETA, will suffice. You can easily apply for this e-visa / ETA here.

After the visa / e-visa / ETA has been granted, the traveler must print it out and have it with him when traveling.

What types of visas are available for Sri Lanka?

Sri Lanka has various types of visas. For example, there are:

  • Visa on arrival can be obtained upon arrival at Colombo Airport for an amount of $ 40 USD. However, there are long waiting times involved
  • E-visas (ETA) can be obtained completely digitally in advance. This is possible up to 90 days before departure. With the electronic visa you can travel in and out of the country twice, within 30 days after first entry. Do you want to travel out of the country and back in again after 30 days? Then you need to apply for a new visa.
