Sri Lanka is introducing a new electronic travel authorisation to replace its visa on arrival for tourists.
Holidaymakers will pay $50, the equivalent of £32, for a permit that allows them to enter twice within 30 days.
The on arrival visa service will still be available until the ETA, which can be applied for at http://www.eta.gov.lk, replaces it by 1 January 2012.
