Re-Opening of On-Arrival ETA Counter at the Bandadaranayake International Airport and Mattala International Airport
The Department of Immigration and Emigration has commenced issuing ETA on arrival by re-opening the On-Arrival ETA counter at the Airport for tourists.
Please be informed that, issuing on-arrival ETA will be facilitated for tourists who are unable to obtain ETA by online mode due to constraints experienced when arranging their journey to Sri Lanka within a very short period.
This arrangement is available for all nationals except the passport holders of the following countries.
- Ivory Coast
- North Korea
It is advisable to obtain the online ETA by the tourists, where possible, prior to their arrival.
This facility will be provided considering as an essential service requirement by adhering to all COVID-19 preventive measures declared by the Government of Sri Lanka.
