It is absolutely crucial for UK citizens planning to travel to Sri Lanka to apply for their visa well in advance. The processing time for visa applications is between 05 hours to 03 business days, thus UK citizens should apply for a Sri Lanka ETA at least 07 days before their travel. Failure to allow sufficient time for processing could lead to unnecessary delays and potentially jeopardize your travel plans.
After UK citizens fill in the application form and pay the v fee, they can click the “Submit” button and wait for the response from Sri Lanka Immigration Services.
Once the application form is submitted, UK citizens cannot modify it. Therefore, they have to ensure that they enter the correct details before submitting their visa application. Any mistakes or unmatched information may result in a delay in processing time.
The email address is used to receive all the notifications and updates of the ETA. Because the entire process is online, UK passport holders can use one of these electronic payment methods: Debit/ Credit card, PayPal, or American Express to pay the visa fee. If UK travelers find out later that they have made a mistake, then they will have to submit a fresh application and pay the relevant fee again.
In addition, UK citizens are recommended to print out their Sri Lanka ETA before departure and keep it securely during their journey to the country. Upon arrival, the Immigration Officer will ask them to present it before letting you enter the Sri Lanka border.
Do not underestimate the importance of applying early, especially during peak travel seasons or when significant holidays are approaching in Sri Lanka. By applying with ample time, British citizens can avoid the stress and inconvenience of last-minute visa arrangements.
