Sri Lanka Visa FAQs

When is the best time to apply for my Sri Lanka visa?
The best time to apply for your Sri Lanka visa is 1-2 months before your travel date.

Do I have to send you my passport to get a Sri Lanka visa? Is it safe to send a passport?
Yes. You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Sri Lanka visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa request cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application in a secure way, using a traceable courier such as FedEx.
