Make sure you meet the requirements

One of the best things about iVisa’s services is that you do not have to make too much of an effort to get the process started. You only need to put together a few documents and some information. Below, you will find a list of everything that is necessary:

  • Valid passport – to obtain a Sri Lanka Business ETA, all applicants must have a valid passport that maintains its validity for at least another 6 months from the date of arrival in Sri Lanka.

  • Copy of your passport’s information page – making a copy is easy, and you should be able to scan it in just a few seconds.

  • Valid e-mail address – iVisa will send you the ETA via e-mail in PDF format, which is why you must provide an e-mail address to which you have access.

  • Means of payment – during the application process, you will be required to make the payment. iVisa accepts credit or debit cards, but you can use PayPal, Alipay, or WeChat as well.

Fill in the application form

Once you notice that you have everything on the list above, you can proceed to fill in the application form. That should not take you more than 20 minutes, and if you need assistance with the process, you can contact iVisa’s support service 24/7. The service is free of charge.

The form consists of three simple steps. The first one requires you to insert your personal information such as name, address, date of birth, and so on. Travel details and passport info are also needed. At the same time, you must select a processing time for your application. iVisa gives you three options, but they all have different fees, so keep that in mind. They are as follows:

  • Standard processing – this is the cheapest and slowest option iVisa puts at your disposal. Even so, it is not as slow as you may think. Your application is processed within 1 business day, and it costs $70.

  • Rush processing – this time, your ETA arrives in just 3 hours, but you will be charged $100.

  • Super Rush processing – if you are on your way to the airport and forgot about your ETA, this option solves the problem. It only takes 30 minutes for your application to be processed. As you can imagine, the fee is higher. $120 to be more specific.

Step two requires you to make the payment and revise step one. It is imperative that you check your form for typos and inaccuracies since any one of them can invalidate your visa.

The last step is the moment in which iVisa asks you to upload documents, such as the copy of your passport’s information page mentioned above. Additional documents may also be required, but you will be informed about that. Once you are done, just hit the submit button and iVisa will send you your Sri Lanka Business ETA in the timeframe you selected.

The bottom line is that getting a Sri Lanka Business visa online has never been easier. iVisa handles all the bureaucracy so that you do not have to. The document is valid 90 days since issue, and it grants a double entry. You can stay in Sri Lanka for up to 30 days per entry.
