New visa ruling to visit Sri Lanka

Come January, a visit to Sri Lanka for Malaysians would mean having to apply for a visa in advance replacing the visa-on-arrival currently and that too involves no payment.

A visa in advance can be applied online on the Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) system.

A Sri Lanka High Commission visa official said the fee is RM15 for a single-entry 30-day visa; RM45 for multiple entries valid for three months; and US$50 (RM187.50) for a 30-day tourist visa. Transit passengers would also be required to apply for a visa. This new ruling applies to 78 countries, Malaysia being one of them.

There are many Malaysians here who are Sri Lankan immigrants and who still have family in Sri Lanka. This new ruling will pose some inconvenience for those who frequently visit their relatives in Sri Lanka.

Another visa free country for Indians, Sri Lanka is the place to visit if you’re looking for all-year-round sun and a relaxed lifestyle to go with it. With several gorgeous places to visit, each renowned for their individual beauty, you’ll need a few weeks at the very least to explore the country.
