Arrival/Departure

The Sri Lankan government wants to make entry for tourists possible again as soon as possible. Unfortunately there are no concrete indications at present. The Sri Lankan Tourism Authority is still awaiting approval from the Sri Lankan Ministry of Health, whose to priority is to prevent a renewed flare-up of Corona in Sri Lanka. No concrete date for the opening of the airport has yet been announced. 

 

Sri Lanka is preparing intensively for the reopening for tourists. This includes the implementation of strict hygiene and sanitary regulations in all tourist facilities. In the future, travel in relation to Corona should be as safe as possible for both tourists and the local population in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka has received the "Safe Travels Stamp" from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). This award rewards countries for complying with the WTTC's strict global hygiene protocols. The Safe Travels Stamp is intended to provide travellers from around the world with the assurance that the facility in question is complying with global hygiene and sanitation standards.
