Sri Lanka introduces online arrival card system
The government of Sri Lanka has introduced an online arrival card system which foreign visitors can complete three days before they reach the destination.
The UK Foreign Office updated its advisory for the country saying: “The Department of Immigration and Emigration have introduced an online arrival card system which foreign nationals can complete three days prior to arrival in Sri Lanka.
“All visitors need to comply with the guidelines imposed for tourists by the Government of Sri Lanka.”
The FCDO says all visitors are advised to apply online for an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) to enter Sri Lanka.
“Further information on eligibility is available on the Department of Immigration and Emigration website,” adds the advisory.
“Visitors can apply for an ETA on the ETA website.
“On-arrival visa facilities are available, however applying for an ETA before travel is advised for ease of travel and to prevent delays on arrival.”
Tourist visas are normally valid for 30 days.
Passports should be valid for six months from the date of arrival.
