Is the Sri Lanka ETA Business visa the same as an Investor visa?
I apologize for having to inform you of this but the Sri Lankan business visa is not the same as a general ETA visa.
The Business ETA is a new program that allows companies to send their workers on 30 day business trips to the country. You can go to conferences, workshops, seminars and symposiums among other things.
The Investor Visa allows foreigners to come and stay in Sri Lanka for long periods, if they invest in specific business ventures in the country. This visa caters to those professionals who want to set up shop here and help this economy grow.
To be eligible for investor visa, you will need to make a minimum initial investment of 250k Sri Lankan rupees in any Sri Lanka bank.
The Sri Lanka ETA Business visa is a temporary visa that allows individuals to enter the country for a maximum of 90 days. It is a business visitor visa, not an investor visa.
The Sri Lanka ETA Business Visa is one of the best options for people who don’t have ample funds to invest in the country, but still want to work on their business idea or project in Sri Lanka.
