Sri Lanka e-Visa Instructions

Applicable for all Sri Lanka tours.

All Wendy Wu group tours include the Sri Lanka eVisa (also known as Electronic Travel Authorization) processing fee for Australian passport holders, unless you have opted to arrange this yourself. For private tours or short stays, the visa may not be included, please refer to your invoice. 

We require the documents listed below to apply for your e-Visa. Visa documents are due no later than 60 days prior to departure. Applications will generally not be accepted within 30 days of departure. 

Sri Lanka e-Visa Application Checklist:

  • 1 x coloured scan of passport bio page
  • Land only bookings - full flight itinerary
  • Your COVID-19 vaccination status (vaccinated or unvaccinated) - certificate not required
  • A list of any other countries you will be visiting within 14 days of entry into Sri Lanka
  • Please email scans to

Basic Visa Application Requirements:

  • Passports must have a minimum of 6 months validity left, from the date of your arrival back into Australia.
  • Scans must be coloured, clear and no information cut off. Photos taken via a phone will generally not be accepted.
  • The Sri Lanka e-Visa is valid for a stay of up to 30 days. 
  • On arrival, you may be granted 30 days with double entry facility and double entries can be made from the date of initial arrival (within given 30 days). The balance period of the 30 days of the initial entry will be granted for the second visit to Sri Lanka.
  • If you have arrangements not booked through Wendy Wu Tours that will affect your visa (such as own arrangements before your tour with us), then please provide a detailed travel itinerary issued by a travel agent, airline or cruise company which includes your full name, the dates and places of entry and exit as well as the mode of transport to be used. 
  • Wendy Wu Tours includes the visa processing fee for Australian passport holders only. If you hold a passport of another nationality, additional fees may be required.

Visa Conditions

  • It is very important that you read the instruction sheet carefully. Please ensure you send us visa documents before the due date. If you believe your visa application may be rejected, then contact the Visa Department.
  • The Sri Lankan Consulate is strict about the presentation of applications. Including, but not limited to your passport validity or photo, if any documentation or material are incorrect then the consulate will reject the application. In this case, the customer will incur any urgent processing fees or tour cancellation costs. Wendy Wu Tours cannot accept responsibility for any failure in this respect.
  • Wendy Wu Tours has no control over Consular decisions to issue visas. Once your application is submitted, the Consulate may require you to pay additional fees or provide further documents, information, and/or material. In some cases, the Consulate will require the applicant to submit their passport and visa application forms in person.
  • A passport with a minimum of six months validity is required for customers traveling to all countries in our programme. Visa fees are included for Australian passport holders in all fully inclusive group tours. Non-Australian passport holders will incur additional fees. In some cases, we may not be able to process your visa and you may be required to present in person at the local embassy or consulate.
  • Passport and visa applications are due into Wendy Wu Tours no later than 60 days prior to departure. Please notify your travel agent or Wendy Wu Tours if you cannot make the deadline or choose to arrange your own visas.
  • Passports and visa applications will generally not be accepted within 30 days prior to departure.
  • Unless otherwise requested, your e-visa will be returned with final documentation approximately 2 – 3 weeks prior to your departure date.
