Wrong e-mail adress ETA tourist visa application

Hello,

Whilst applying for a tourist ETA visa I made an error and filled out the wrong e-mail adress. The immigration office is not reponding on my e-mails. Any options what I can do?

Regards

Hi Ruud,

Not a problem. As long as you wrote down or printed your tracking number which was displayed upon application, you can check the status of your application. Sending e-mail to the office is generally totally useless...

All the best,

You can also check the status using your passport number.

I called them via Skype to confirm when I made the same mistake. They are very good at ensuring all is ok.

Hi there,

Just pick any hotel in Negombo or whatever will be your first place to stay. Never got asked about details etc.

All the best,

Thank you for your answer Erik.

But I do not have any hotel yet. So what should I write, anyone knows?

Goldi Sands hotel Negombo is one of the 'any' hotels possible ;-)

Hi ErikdR, I have read your replies about the queries made on this forum, thanks a lot for providing the answers, I have 2 doubts, one is I got a response from ETA that "We are pleased to inform you that your application for ETA has been approved."

Is this the final visa approval which I need to show (print out) to immigration at airport.

They have also asked for proof for sufficient funds, Can I show bank statement as a proof for sufficient funds to stay in Sri Lanka.
