To visit Sri Lanka for tourism purposes all nationals should apply for tourist visa. We recommend you to apply about a month prior to arrival. A visit visa (tourist visa) is charged at 30 USD per person above 12 years of age. Nationals of Singapore and Maldives are exempt from paying a visa fee but are still required to submit an application. Children below 12 years who possess passports are required to apply too. For kids with no passports but are endorsed on mother’s passport, the parent should furnish details of the child on the specific area on her visa application form. You can apply on-line at: www.eta.gov.lk

In Maldives, visa is stamped free of charge for all nationals on arrival in Male.

To visit Sri Lanka, your passport needs to be valid for no less than 06 months from the date of completion of your visit/tour.As for the Maldives, your passport needs to be valid for the duration of stay.

Both countries are tropical and are located within the equatorial belt.

May to September is dry and sunny on the east and north of Sri Lanka. And the western and southern parts are dry between December and February which makes the country ideal to travel throughout the year. March to April and October to November are considered inter-monsoon months with showers pouring down during evening hours.

Pretty much similar to Sri Lanka, the Maldives has a hot tropical climate all the year round and the monsoons occur in the same pattern. However even in the inter-monsoon months tourists can enjoy long hours of broad daylight.

Cotton clothes, flip-flops or sandals, sunglasses, a hat or a cap, bathing suit, sun block are recommended throughout the year. You may however need woolen clothes when travelling to highlands and appropriate clothing if you plan to climb mountains, enjoy hiking or white water rafting. We will provide with baby seats at our end for families with toddlers.

When visiting places of worship, you are encouraged to be more conservative and wear appropriate attire, which is equally valued anywhere around the world. Strappy vests, armless T-shirts, shorts are not a good idea. Locals visit temples barefooted but you may go in socks. However removing headgear is a must. Taking a photograph with your back to a Buddha statue is considered disrespectful.

In the Northern parts of the Island, men are required to take off all upper-garments when visiting Hindu Kovils.

Majority of hi-end hotels won’t welcome entering the restaurant in shorts.
