Will you or a friend be traveling to Sri Lanka for a trip? You will have to obtain a Sri Lanka visa in order to travel to Sri Lanka.

You will not have to submit any documentation, your visa will be e-mailed to you. Also, you should make sure that your current passport has a minimum of 6 months validity after you exit Sri Lanka, as well as a minimum of (2) blank visa pages to accommodate any visa stamps.

If you will be staying in Sri Lanka for more than 30 days, you will need to send in documentation to obtain a visa for a stay of more than 30 days in Sri Lanka.
