According to the government of Sri Lanka, the Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) services is all set to resume and this service is for fully vaccinated international travellers. The resumption of ETA services will make things easier for International Travellers.
Sri Lanka’s Immigration and Emigration Department Controller General Sarath Rupasiri said that the on-arrival ETA would help international travellers who have constraints and are unable to get their visas online.
According to the report, the ETA will be available for international arrivals at the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport in Hambantota, and at the Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo.
The controller general has made it clear that the ETA’s should be encouraged so that there are no hassles for incoming travellers and no delays at airports.
ETA’s are valid for 30 days which can further be extended to 6 months and the ETA is basically a more reliable, efficient, and simplified service for incoming travellers. According to the official website of Sri Lanka’s ETA service, no passport copies, documents, or photographs are required for this process.
Sri Lanka is one of the major international destinations for Indian travellers where the beaches are widely appreciated.
