Is a Sri Lanka visa required for a Swiss citizen?

Yes. A Sri Lanka visa for Swiss citizens, who wish to visit this beautiful country, is required. Citizens of Switzerland can apply for a visa in two ways:

Applying online for Sri Lanka e-Visa is a simple process which takes citizens of Switzerland only a few minutes to complete. They just need to fill out the secure application form and pay the visa fee online using electronic payment methods. Regarding the required documentation, Swiss citizens are required to obtain a passport that is valid for at least 06 months from the intended arrival date in Sri Lanka before beginning the visa application process.
