Delivery times and urgency procedure
The delivery time for the Sri Lanka visa is on average 3 days. Take note: this is an average, and not a maximum. For travellers that need their visa in the near future, the possibility exists of submitting an urgent application. An added fee of £17.50 per person is charged for this. Urgently submitted application are on average issued within 23 minutes after making the payment for the visa cost. The urgency fee is the same for both business and tourist visas.
Submitting an application with an urgent delivery can be done through the normal application form. In it, you can indicate that an urgent delivery is required, which allows for faster processing.
Can I expect any additional costs?
The visa cost and urgency fee mentioned above are the total prices. These include all necessary consular costs, service costs, administration costs and taxes. No transaction costs are charged, regardless of the payment method you choose.
It is also possible to submit a group application for multiple people at once, if they are travelling to Sri Lanka together. The costs per person are the same as those of separate applications, but applying is easier and faster because a lot of information only needs to be filled out once.

Are the delivery times guaranteed?
Delivery times of visas can never be guaranteed. Applications are processed manually and there is always a chance of an unforeseen random background check. This also applies to applications for which an urgent delivery was chosen. If you use the urgency procedure, a visa specialist will get to work on your application within 24 hours and submit it at the immigration service of Sri Lanka. In practice, this happens (much) faster, allowing for the average (but not guaranteed) delivery time of 23 minutes to be reached. From the moment the immigration service of Sri Lanka has started processing the application, e-Visa.co.uk cannot influence the speed at which the application is processed in any way.
