You can apply for a 30 day Tourist visa fo $35 US by visiting the Sri Lanka ETA website
www.eta.gov.lk. Follow the online application process and pay with a credit or debit card. Once
Approved, print out the visa confirmation.
You can still obtain visas at Sri Lankan embassies abroad and there is a counter at Bandaranaike International Airport for people who arrive without a visa, although you’ll have to wait for a short while and pay a small fee.
You can renew a 30-day tourist visa twice, for 30 days each time. Contact the Department of Immigration and Emigration. Extensions are not hard to get but require jumping through some bureaucratic hoops, downloading some forms and a lengthy wait in Colombo immigration offices.
