What People are Saying
  • Sri Lanka with amazing UNESCO World Heritage Sites and buddhist temples makes it to the list of most visited places by tourists. The process for Sri Lanka visa is easy. All travellers visiting Sri Lanka need to obtain an electronic Travel Authorization known as ETA prior to arrival or on arrival to Sri Lanka. For Indians the process is more simpler. The Indian tourists holding this important document can obtain a visa on arrival which is valid for 30 days.

  • It is hard to believe that a small country has so much to offer. Be it the pristine beaches of Sri Lanka or the wildlife santuaries, every place is magical. I went to Sri lanka with Thomas Cook's SriLankan Wonders tour package, the trip was pretty good and the arrangements were really nice, as mentioned in the itinerary. And the staff took care of my visa application process as well.

  • I went to Sri Lanka with my family, everyone got their visa on time except my son. Since it was supposed to be a family trip so leaving without my son wasn't an option for me. And that's when I got in touch with a staff member of Thomas cook and they helped me and provided me with proper procedure and asked me to apply again for the Sri Lanka visa.
