How to get a Sri Lanka Visa online?

An online visa can be obtained from Sri Lanka’s Electronic Travel Authorization website. The cost of ETA is USD 15 for citizens of SAARC countries and USD 30 for citizens of other countries. It is good for 30 days and double entry.

After you apply for an ETA on the website, the ETA will be e-mailed to you, print the copy and bring it along with you when you travel to Sri Lanka. Once you get down the aircraft and at the immigration counter, show the printed copy to the immigration officer and a visa will be attached to your passport on the spot.

VISA ON ARRIVAL

When I arrived in Sri Lanka, there was a visa on arrival counter at Bandaranaike International Airport, but much details are not known.
