Sri Lanka Visa For Qatar Residents

*Tourist, Business & Transit Purposes

When traveling to Sri Lanka for tourism or business, citizens of Qatar do not need to go to an embassy in order to obtain a visa because that is contrary to the policy of Sri Lanka's immigration authorities regarding visas.

·      A piece of evidence that you will depart Sri Lanka prior to the expiration of your permitted stay (e.g., a flight ticket).

·      You are in possession of the essential documentation to demonstrate the objective of your journey. For instance, if you are traveling on business, you may need a letter of invitation from the company you would be visiting.

·      When you apply for a resident or long-term visa for Sri Lanka at the embassy in which you intend to make your application, the embassy will inform you of the documents that you are required to submit.
