Applying for Sri Lanka Electronic Travel Authorization

Thursday, May 24, 2018

Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) is required for travel to Sri Lanka. So a few days ago I applied for an ETA through the official Sri Lankan government website and, surprisingly, it went quite smoothly.  I’ve read many complaints about the website not working properly, people being denied for various reasons, and some not receiving their email confirmations. I was a bit anxious for I might encounter such problems too but, luckily, I didn’t. I just went to the website, filled in and submitted the application form, and then paid the fee via credit card. Within a couple of minutes, I received an email confirming receipt of my application. And not long after that, I received the ETA approval notice. It was that fast and efficient. I wonder why others didn’t have the same experience.

Now that I’ve received travel authorization, booked all accommodations, and purchased plane tickets, I’m all set for our Sri Lankan escapade.
