Sri Lankan Govt to restart ETA service for travellers at airport

Sri Lanka: The government of Sri Lanka has announced that it has determined to restart the on-arrival Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) service at its airports for fully vaccinated international travellers.

In a statement issued on Friday, Immigration and Emigration Department Controller General Sarath Rupasiri stated the issuance of on-arrival ETA would facilitate tourists who were not able to obtain an online Electronic Travel Authorisation due to time constraints in arranging their journey to Sri Lanka.

The Controller General said the facility would be available at the Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo and the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport in Hambantota. However, in spite of the facility, the controller general advised travel operators to encourage incoming tourists to obtain the online Electronic Travel Authorisation prior to their arrival in the country to avoid unnecessary delays at the airport. Sri Lanka witnessed the highest tourist arrivals growth in September with 13,547 arrivals while the country recorded 37,000 visitors from January to September.
