Extension of Tourist Visa (ETA)
Foreign nationals seeking extension of their tourist ETA should apply for extensions before the expiry of the ETA. Extensions are usually given in three month blocks and maximum length of tourist visa is for six months.
a. Completed and signed tourist visa extension application form
b. Passport of the applicant (original)
c. One colour passport size photograph of applicant (size (3.5x 4.5 cm)
d. Proof of financial resources to cover expenses for the extended stay
e. Proof of return air ticket to the country of domicile or a visa to the next country of destination
f. Other supporting documents to justify the request for extension
Note: Depending on the officer you may not get asked for return flight or proof of financial resources. Extension may or may not be granted depending upon the reason for the extension, and whether the Department of Immigration and Emigration is convinced that the applicant does intend to return to his/her country after the stay in Sri Lanka. Always better to adhear to the rules.
