How is the iVisa application form?
The form you must complete consists of three steps.
- The first one covers general information, processing time, and ETA type. When you choose a processing time for your application and a visa type, keep in mind that the cost of your Sri Lanka ETA depends on your decisions. Regarding the processing time, iVisa came up with three options:
Standard processing – most people go for this option because it is the cheapest. You receive your Sri Lanka ETA in 24 hours, and you only have to pay USD 55.00.
Rush processing – for somewhat faster processing, you can choose this option. Your application is processed within 4 hours, and the fee is USD 85.00.
Super Rush processing – if you want your ETA as soon as possible, you can choose this option and have your application processed within 30 minutes. And the fee is USD 100.00.
As far as the visa type is concerned, you also have the option of applying for a Sri Lanka Business ETA if your trip is for business purposes. The fees differ, though. This visa will cost you an additional $13 for each processing time.
The second step wants you to take care of the payment, but you also have to review your form to make sure that there are no mistakes in it.
And the third requires you to upload a few documents.
As soon as you are done, you are free to submit your application, and iVisa will take care of the rest.
