The Ministry of Foreign Relations today said the European Commission has informed Sri Lanka that it has not yet considered to open the region for countries that have not yet opened airports nor accepted visitors from the EU region.

In a statement, the Ministry said it notes the decision of the EU to reopen its external borders on July 1, 2020 initially to a list of less than 15 countries that does not include Sri Lanka.

“The Embassy of Sri Lanka accredited to European Union in Brussels which has been actively lobbying for Sri Lanka’s inclusion in the list was informed by the European Commission that it has not yet considered countries that have not opened airports nor accepted visitors from the EU region.

The Embassy was further informed that the list will be progressively expanded depending on the progress made in the epidemiological situation in countries, the ability to apply containment measures during travel and whether or not that country has lifted travel restrictions towards the EU countries,” it said.

    We place a great value to protection of our nation from Corona than the entry permit to Europe. Ground situation is every body outside Sri Lanka is trying hard to come in rather than going out to suicidal destinations such as EU.
