About Sri Lanka - Sri Lanka Visa Requirements

Sri Lanka tourists visa regulations are simple. Citizens of countries offered tourists visa on arrival can enter Sri Lanka without a prior visa and will be allowed (depending on country of nationality) at the point of entry without any payment. In other words, tourists from these countries visiting Sri Lanka can enter the country with minimum formalities. Nationals of countries not classified under the above scheme are required to possess a valid visa, obtained from the respective Sri Lanka Diplomatic Missions, prior to entering the country irrespective of the purpose of visit.

Tourists should have a return air ticket, sufficient foreign exchange (currency, travellers cheques, credit cards) for maintenance (minimum USD 15 per person per day). Note that taking foreign currency into the country is not restricted but all amounts over USD 5,000 are subject to declaration.
