Local News Sri Lanka: The UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) today announced that based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks, Sri Lanka is exempt from the FCO advice against all non-essential international travel. The exemption is effective from today, 24th July.
The FCO has updated its global advisory against ‘all but essential’ travel, exempting destinations that no longer pose an unacceptably high risk for British travelers.
Travel to Sri Lanka is subject to entry restrictions and is currently prohibited for all non-nationals. Non-national residents in Sri Lanka, who wish to return, are requested to contact the nearest Sri Lankan High Commission for advice.
Further, 14 day quarantine is mandatory for all those travelling into Sri Lanka, followed by 14 days self-isolation at home.
