India Sri Lanka travel guideline updates: Sri Lanka lifts travel restrictions Excluding India: Sri Lanka ends travel ban for citizens of all countries except Indians
Sri Lanka on Wednesday announced the lifting of a temporary travel ban imposed on foreigners from June 1. However, this exemption will not be available to those travelers who have been in India during the last 14 days. A maximum 75 passenger limit has been set for all flights arriving in the country and it will be mandatory for them to stay in Quarantine for 14 days.
The ban on the entry of Indians will continue
The Civil Aviation Office of Sri Lanka said in a statement that any passengers with background of travel to India, who have been there during transit in the last 14 days, will not be allowed to come. Foreign nationals, seafarers/travellers, traders, investors and others need to obtain an entry visa as well as approval from the Ministry of External Affairs to enter the country.
RT-PCR test required
According to the requirement of the airline or country, it will be mandatory for all classes of passengers to take a negative PCR test certificate before leaving on the journey. All passengers will have to pay for separate accommodation. Colombo Airport is acting as a transit hub for Indians going to West Asia but the facility was withdrawn in early May as the Kovid-19 epidemic intensified.
