Sri Lanka has introduced an electronic visa system and tourist visas should be applied for before your arrival:
Visas on arrival are still being issued for those who forget to obtain a visa in advance but this will delay your passport arrival formalities at the airport.
All riders must bring a full motorcycle international licence or a motorbike licence from their home country.
Every client must send their International drivers licence copy to us at least 1 month before the departure date. So that we can endorse with AA Ceylon in Sri Lanka. Then your Endorsement will be ready when you arrive to Sri Lanka

All accommodation is twin-share unless a single supplement is required.
As indicated in the itinerary most meals will be included and we like to splurge. The emphasis will be on traditional Sri Lankan cuisine.

Most meals and activities on the tour are included. You will only need money for alcoholic drinks, optional activities and souvenirs.
