Sri Lanka Visa FAQs

Sri Lanka government introduced a new Electronic Visa called ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization, Srilanka eVisa) for a short visit to Sri Lanka on 1st January 2012. Travellers intending to visit Sri Lanka for a short stay must have a valid visa issued by Department of Immigration & Emigration, Colombo, Sri Lanka. The Sri Lanka e visa is a complete online process and the approval for the same will be communicated via email. The ETA (Electronic Travel Authority) replaces the need to apply for a Sri Lanka visa in person through the Sri Lankan Embassy/Consulate.

Sri Lanka travel guide

Locals usually speak in Tamil and Sinhala, though a huge chunk speaks in English as well. This further boosts tourism, given that the average tourist from around the world is attracted to tropical beaches. A typical trip to Sri Lanka should take you to a beach or two, up into a misty hill station, see you spend time with elephants and whales, or explore ancient world heritage sites. Placed near the equator, Sri Lanka enjoys consistently tropical weather. Different parts of the country can be visited at different times during the year, making it tourist friendly most of the time. Visitors head to its beaches, hill stations, tea plantations and wildlife centres throughout the year. Sri Lanka, being an island nation peppered with beaches and ancient sites, remains a popular choice with travellers following different itineraries. Beach bums, adventure seekers, trekkers, and culture vultures all head to the country for their idea of a good time. Like all tourist friendly destinations, Sri Lanka has accommodation and food options for all budgets – from the basic to the average, and all the way to the luxurious.

You’ve got a perfect holiday destination squeezed into an island a quarter of the size of the UK!

The ideal way to move within the country is by trains and Tuk-Tuk. Tuk-Tuk is quite cheap as you have to pay approximately $20 for a whole day visit. Various typical routes to travel by Tuk-Tuk are Galle to Colombo that costs $2, Kandy to Nuwara is around $2, and Jaffna to Colombo is about $3.

What’s more, the country is affordable and full of delicious cuisine as well as intriguing history.

While in Sri Lanka do not miss catching the sight of world’s oldest living human-planted tree at Anuradhapura, be completely amazed at the sight of elephants in Minneriya or smile at the locals while you take a walk around the village. Enjoy the local cuisine or sit and watch the waves at a beach. Sri Lanka is fantastic, glorious and affordable.

And if you have been thinking that Sri Lanka is all about sun and sand and lowlands, you are wrong. When you are done with the golden charm, head for the hills to be charmed by the greens.

Reasons for Sri Lanka Visa Rejection

The most common reason for rejection of e visa for Sri Lanka from India is if the Sri Lankan Immigration authorities’s visa requirements have not been met. For instance: Invalid or damaged passport, less pages in passport etc. When considering an application for a Srilanka visit visa, the Sri Lanka High Commission is looking to assess whether the applicant meets the eligibility and suitability requirements to enter Sri Lanka. Failing to demonstrate that you meet the requirements will get your application rejected.
For example, if you are travelling to Sri Lanka to attend a meeting or seminar, you would not be eligible to travel on a Srilanka visit visa or tourist visa and would instead need to apply for the appropriate business visa.
Commonly, the Sri Lanka visa application form should not have any errors but mistakes can happen. Leaving certain information blank, errors in the spellings, incorrect filling of form or simple negligence can result into Sri Lanka visa rejection.
If the High Commission of Sri Lanka found that the information or claims made in the application form is false, the Sri Lanka visa application will definitely be refused. Moreover, the applicant can be charged with visa fraud on the basis of wrong information provided or will be prohibited from entering Sri Lanka forever.
The Embassy officers must know why you want to travel to Sri Lanka. Failure to prove that you are genuinely seeking entry for a purpose that is permissible by the Immigration laws and you will not undertake any prohibited activities can result into Sri Lanka visa rejection. For example, it is not enough to assume,“I have to travel to Sri Lanka for business so I need a Visa”. The Visa officers does know that you need to visit for business reasons unless you present evidence (Invitation letter of host company etc.)
Applicant who has violated Sri Lanka Immigration laws such as illegal entry, visa overstay or unauthorised employment on previous visit is most likely to face serious complications in all future applications.
Applicants who were involved in some criminal activities (theft, shoplifting assault, sexual assault, driving while intoxicated, drug trafficking and possession etc.) in the past may be subjected to visa complexities or even visa rejection. Make sure to abide by the laws and policies of the Sri Lankan Government.
Applying for any type of travel visa requires a lot of preparation and a thorough knowledge of the Immigration rules and requirements. While not hiring qualified Visa Experts can help you save some of your money, it will never save you from the frustrations that will come from applying for your Sri Lanka visa incorrectly.
