Do Pakistanis need a visa for Sri Lanka?

Yes. Pakistani citizens need a visa to travel to Sri Lanka because Pakistan is not on the exemption list for Sri Lanka visas. Pakistani citizens now can apply for a Sri Lanka electronic visa which saves time and costs.

Since 2012, travelers who want to enter Sri Lanka for a short-term visit can apply for Sri Lanka ETA. This type of online visa allows visitors to visit Sri Lanka for purposes such as tourism, business, or transit. The visa application process is simple and just takes the applicants a few minutes to complete.

Pakistani citizens who want to come to Sri lanka for other purposes such as study abroad, work, etc, need to apply for a visa at the Sri lanka consulate in Pakistani or anywhere.
