A popular winter destination will raise visa prices from December. We are talking about Sri Lanka. Both visas issued on arrival and electronic visas will rise in price.
As ATOR was told at the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Moscow, from December 1, 2022, the cost of an electronic visa (electronic entry permit or ETA for short) with a validity period 180 days (single entry) will increase from $35 to $50 per adult. Similarly, there will be an ETA with a validity of 30 days (double entry).
Visa on arrival will rise in price even a little more – by $ 20. Instead of $40, a tourist will have to pay $60. What is convenient for Russians who are suffering because of non-working bank cards, a visa can be paid in cash. Free visas will remain only for children under 12 years old. It is obvious that Sri Lanka took such an unpopular step for tourists in order to receive additional income for the budget due to the plight of its economy, especially since the island is now experiencing a real tourist boom, especially from Russia.
