Sri Lanka Visa Visa – How To Get A Sri Lankan Visa

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. If you plan on staying in Sri Lanka for 30 days or less, then you will be able to apply for a tourist visa as a United States citizen electronically. 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. Your documents will need to include a Sri Lanka visa application form, your original, signed United States passport with at least 6 months validity, (2) passport photographs, an itinerary of your trip, a current bank statement, and a Personal Letter from the applicant to the Embassy of Sri Lanka explain the purpose and details of the trip.
