The cost of the Sri Lanka visa depends on the chosen visa type, the length of stay and the desired delivery time. For a business trip or holiday to Sri Lanka an e-visa suffices, also called ETA. With it, you can stay in Sri Lanka for up to 30 days.
Cost of the e-visa Sri Lanka
The base cost of the electronic visa for Sri Lanka is € 69,95 per person. This base price applies to all tourist trips with a length of stay in Sri Lanka of a maximum of 30 days. This includes holidays, but also visits to friends or family.

Delivery times and urgency procedure
The delivery time for the Sri Lanka visa is on average about 3 days. Take note: this is an average, and not a maximum. For travellers that need their visa in the near future, it is possible to submit an urgent application. For an urgent application, there will be an added fee of € 17,50 per person. Urgent applications are on average issued within 23 minutes after making the payment. The urgency fee is the same for both business and tourist visas.
Submitting an application with an urgent delivery can be done through the normal application form. In the form, you can indicate that an urgent delivery is required, which allows for faster processing.
Can I expect any additional costs?
The visa cost and urgency fee mentioned above are the total prices. These include all necessary consular costs, service costs, administration costs and taxes. No transaction costs are charged, regardless of the payment method you choose.
It is also possible to submit a group application for multiple people at once, if they are travelling to Sri Lanka together. The costs per person are the same as those of separate applications, but applying is easier and faster because a lot of information only needs to be filled out once.

Are the delivery times guaranteed?
Delivery times of visas can never be guaranteed. Applications are processed manually and there is always a chance of an unforeseen random background check. This also applies to urgent delivery applications as well. If you choose an urgent delivery, a visa specialist will get to work on your application within 24 hours and submit it to the immigration service of Sri Lanka. In practice, this happens (much) faster, allowing for the average (but not guaranteed) delivery time of 23 minutes to be reached. From the moment the immigration service of Sri Lanka has started processing the application, e-Visa.ie cannot influence the speed at which the application is processed in any way.
e-Visa.ie is a commercial and professional visa agency, and supports travellers in obtaining, among others, the Sri Lanka visa. e-Visa.ie acts as an intermediary and is in no way part of any government. You can also apply for a visa directly with the immigration service (52,08 USD per visa, via eta.gov.lk). However, not with our level of support. If you submit your application via e-Visa.ie, our support centre is available to you 24/7. We also check your application before submitting it to the immigration authorities on your behalf. If we suspect any errors or omissions while doing so, we will personally contact you to ensure that your application can still be processed quickly and correctly. To use our services, you pay us 52,08 USD in consular fees, which we pay to the immigration service on your behalf, as well as € 20,36 in service fees as compensation for our services, including VAT. Our services have saved many travellers from major problems during their trip. Should an application be rejected despite our support and verification, we will refund the full purchase price (unless an application for a previous Sri Lanka visa was rejected for the same traveller).
