Australian citizens can apply for the Sri Lanka ETA by accessing and filling out an online form. They must supply the following information:
- Full name
- Date of birth
- Email address
- Passport number
- Passport issue date
- Passport expiry date
- Purpose of visit
Australian travelers who apply for the Transit ETA must note they must have a departure ticket 48 hours or less after their arrival. If their stay exceeds 2 days, we recommend they apply for the tourist ETA.
After answering all the questions in the ETA form, Australian citizens are advised to check they are correct and match the information published on their travel documents. Once they submit their ETA application, the answers cannot be corrected. Any mistakes could delay their approval or even lead to a rejection of their ETA.
Australian requesters complete the application process for the ETA by paying the processing fee. As mentioned above, we recommend they use a bank card that has been previously activated for online payments and with sufficient funds.
