Visa Assistance Services in Sri Lanka

Visa allows people to visit countries for a holiday or to visit family and friends or for short business visits. Visitor Visas are granted for a specific duration depending on the applicant circumstances at the time of application. They can be single-entry visas, permitting just one entry into a country or they can be granted for multiple visits should you have a necessity to visit a number of times within a specified period. The multiple-entry visas are generally aimed at business people, however, anyone can apply for such status with a valid reason.

There are four types of Sri Lankan visas under which non-Sri Lankans can legitimately enter the country. Each visa contains information about the period of time and the condition/s of stay. A Visit Visa permits foreign nationals to enter the country and this type of visa is sub-divided into two categories, the Tourist Visit Visa and the Business Visit Visa. The Tourist Visit Visa, which is issued for a short period of time, is given to tourists who wish to come to Sri Lanka for travel purposes or to relax. Foreign nationals who wish to engage in business activities are issued Business Visit Visas for either single, double or multiple entries into the country. From the 1st of January 2012, the Department of Immigration and Emigration has specified that all Business or Holiday travellers to Sri Lanka must obtain Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) in order to enter the country. The ETA fees differ based on the country of the applicant, the type of visa and duration of stay.

The second type of visa is a Residence Visa and it allows non-Sri Lanka to obtain residence in Sri Lanka if they fulfil certain special criteria. The third type of visa is a Transit Visa which allows for foreign nationals to enter Sri Lanka for a short period of time when they are en-route to another destination. The fourth and final visa type is called Gratis Visa in which no fees are levied. It is granted to the holder of a Diplomatic or Official Passport. Irrespective of your Visa Type if you wish to extend your visa you need to make an application to the Department of Immigration and Emigration.
