Sri Lanka introduced dual entry visa for India

Posted by Marine2Alpine on Wednesday, 6th December 2023.

Sri Lanka has introduced a dual entry visa on arrival for tourists from seven countries, including India, Russia, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, and Indonesia. The visa’s validity is restricted to 30 days. This initiative is aimed at rejuvenating the country’s tourism sector, which has experienced a downturn since 2019. Indian tourists represent the largest inbound group for Sri Lanka, comprising nearly 26% of the total arrivals in October 2023, exceeding 28,000 visitors. It is noteworthy that Indian passport holders currently benefit from six months of visa-free entry to Thailand, effective from November 10, 2023, until May 10, 2024.

Similarly, starting December 1, 2023, Malaysia will offer a 30-day visa-free entry for Indian citizens. It is too early to predict the exact impact of Sri Lanka’s dual entry visa on India’s tourism industry. However, it is expected to boost the number of Indian tourists visiting Sri Lanka, which could have a positive impact on the tourism industry of both countries.
