India visa application for Sri Lankan citizens is now more accessible than ever. You can now accomplish of all that at home instead of taking a trip to the Indian embassy. All you need is a computer or smartphone with an internet connection. You still need to make sure that you qualify even if more than 150 nationalities can now apply for such a document. To check eligibility, use the Visa Checker you find on iVisa’s website. It will save you of a lot of visa policy research because it is very easy to use.
The list of things Sri Lankan citizens need to provide is very few. iVisa will do most of the work, but you still need to help them get started. Here is what you need:
Passport – It is very easy to obtain a passport. If you already have one, make sure that it is still valid. Just look at the expiry date.
Digital photo of yourself – it is recommended that it is a recent photo. You should not make face gestures in it, and the background should be white.

Payment method – iVisa accepts multiple methods of payment. You can use a credit or a debit card, and since Paypal has become quite popular, you can use that as well.
Business card copy and invitation letter – this requirement applies to people who want to go to India on business and apply for an India business evisa.
- Letter from the hospital in India – this is valid for people who apply for a medical visa.
The visa cost?
Most Sri Lankan citizens might be concerned about service fee. In the contrary, iVisa provides excellent service for affordable price. The total amount of your evisa depends on processing time and visa cost. As for the former, you can choose one of the three available options:
Standard processing – it is the cheapest option so most applicants go for this. It costs just $35, and your visa will be ready within three business days.
Rush processing – this time your application will be processed in just 1 business day. However, the cost goes a bit higher than with the previous option. You will be charged $65.
- Super Rush processing time – there is not a significant difference between this option and the previous one. For $100, this option will have your application processed in just 18 hours, but those six hours may prove useful in emergent situations.
As for the visa type, Sri Lankan citizens can travel to India with an evisa for tourism, business, and medical purposes. There is a particular price depending on which one you choose. The fees for the tourist evisa are listed above. The business and medical visas cost $10 more for each processing time
The application form
While many don’t like filling out forms, you can relax on this one. iVisa have the easiest forms that Sri Lankan citizens will ever fill in. It should take only 20 minutes to complete all three steps. In case you may need any help, there is a support service that is at your disposal 24/7.
It will only take about 5 minutes to fill in your general information and choose both the processing time and visa type for all that in step one. The second step consists of revision and payment. Make sure that all the information you provide is 100% accurate. Check the spelling carefully. The third step will ask you to answer a few personal questions. You may be required to upload additional documents. Click the submit button after you are done and simply wait. That’s it.
The evisa you receive will allow Sri Lankan citizens multiple entries. Also you can stay in India for maximum 60 days. Keep in mind that the India evisa is accepted only at 25 airports and 5 seaports. If you select another point of entry during your trip, you will have to go to the embassy.
