Sri Lanka Visa Information

Visa Procurement

Please be advised that visa requirements are subject to change and that visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not On The Go Tours. Please also ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your planned date of departure from Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka Visa Requirements

All nationalities require a visa to enter Sri Lanka.

Your visa application must be submitted to the Ministry of Emigration and Immigration via the online ETA (Electronic Travel Authorisation) prior to departure.

To apply for your ETA visit

This is a simple process and requires no additional documents. You must fill in the required information and once the visa is approved, you will be notified with an ETA approval within 24 hours.

For the purposes of completing this form you can use the following hotel address, which is often our group tour start hotel:
OZO HOTEL, Clifford Place Colombo Tel:+94 11 2 555570

The cost of the visa is USD $30, paid online during the ETA process.

The Visa issued will be a Double-Entry Tourists Visa applicable for 30 days from the date of arrival to Sri Lanka.

Maldives Visa Requirements

Nationals of the United Kingdom, the EEC, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and USA (if resident in the UK) currently do not require a visa in advance of entry to the Maldives if staying less than 30 days. Holders of RSA passports must obtain a visa for the Maldives prior to departure.
