There is no minimum stay requirement to visit Sri Lanka though you must stay in a ‘level 1’ hotel or private villa for up to 14 days. You are free to move to other level 1 providers within this period though we recommend staying for at least three days in each location. We have already received level 1 approval for most of our locations. Contact us to learn more.
Online Visa Application
We recommend applying for your visa at least two weeks before arriving in Sri Lanka. www.eta.gov.lk. You will need a reservation confirmation at one of our level 1 hotels or private villas before applying for your visa. Learn more about the visa process here.
We are required to arrange your transport to and from airports within Sri Lanka. As part of the reservation process we will discuss your requirements and arrange transfers in private air conditioned vehicles meeting the strictest hygiene and safety protocols.
Designated national parks, archeological and cultural sites are open for you to discover and explore as part of your holiday.
Depending on the length of your holiday, you may be required to undergo a further PCR test. We will discuss this with you as part of the reservation process and arrange testing on your behalf.
