Sri Lanka visa for the citizens of Ireland
iVisa
3 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

Almost all nationalities in the world are allowed to travel to Sri Lanka on a visa on arrival, and the citizens of Ireland are among them. As an Irish national, you can obtain your Sri Lanka visa on arrival once you get inside the country. However, there is one condition. To obtain that document, you must apply for a Sri Lanka ETA before departure. Lucky for you, that document can be obtained online with iVisa.

Sri Lanka

The requirements for a Sri Lanka ETA

When you apply with iVisa, your effort is minimal. All you have to do is provide some information, a couple of documents, and fill in an application. As for what you must provide iVisa with that should be easy to achieve. You will need the following:

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

  • Digital photo – make sure that the picture is as recent as possible and follows all the guidelines for a passport photo.

  • 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. Do not forget to print out a physical copy before you leave.

  • 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 as well.

Sri Lanka visa for the citizens of Ireland – the application form

As mentioned above, you are required to fill in an application form as well. But that is not difficult either, and it should not take you more than 20 minutes. If you need help with it, as unlikely as that is, iVisa has a fantastic support service you can use. The service is available non-stop, and it is entirely free of charge.

There are three steps you need to complete:

  1. The first one asks for some personal information, but it also requires you to select a processing time that suits you best. Your choice determines the cost of your Sri Lanka ETA. Your options are as follows:

    • Standard processing – this is the cheapest and slowest option iVisa puts at your disposal. Your application is processed within 4 days, and it costs USD $140.99.

    • Rush processing – this time, your ETA arrives in just 2 days, but you will be charged USD $193.99.

    • Super Rush processing – it only takes 36 hours for your application to be processed. As you can imagine, the fee is higher. USD $258.99 to be more precise.

NOTE: If you travel from Ireland to Sri Lanka for business purposes, you need to apply for a Sri Lanka Business ETA, in which case the options for processing remain the same, but the fees go a bit higher. The fees are USD $144.99, USD $195.99, and USD $260.99 respectively.

  1. During the second step, you must make the payment and revise the information you provided during step one. You cannot make any corrections to your application once your application reaches processing, and a small mistake can invalidate your visa. Double-check your application form before moving forward.

  2. Lastly, the third step asks you to upload some documents such as the digital photo mentioned above and a scan of your passport’s information page. iVisa may ask for additional documents, but iVisa will let you know as to what those are. Once you are finished, just submit your application and you are done. iVisa will take it from there.

Needless to say, a Sri Lanka visa for the citizens of Ireland is effortless to obtain. The document you get is valid 180 days after issued, you are granted a Double Entry, and you can stay in Sri Lanka for up to 60 days Per Entry.
