BOI assists with the facilitation of visas for eligible investors and employees.
Upon request, BOI may issue a letter of recommendation to Sri Lankan Embassies / High Commissions of a given country to issue Business Visas to potential investors visiting Sri Lanka.
Please contact the relevant sector team in the Investor Facilitation Centre for assistance.
Once an agreement is signed with the BOI, the BOI may facilitate the issuance of resident visas to relevant investors and qualifying employees.
The company should submit the following documents along with the visa application in three sets to the BOI when applying for visas for expatriates.
Foreign Nationals who wish to travel to Sri Lanka for a short visit (such as business conferences, discussions, training programs, tourism, medical treatments, sports, and cultural shows) can apply visas on-line through Electronic Travel Authorization System. Please click on www.eta.gov.lk
