Sri Lanka has not been exempted from the Global Travel Advisory or border restrictions for the British nationals against all but essential international travel, at this initial stage, the British High Commission in Colombo said today.

The UK has announced a change to its Global Travel Advisory, which advises British nationals against all but essential international travel. From 4 July, the UK will exempt 67 countries from the Global Travel Advisory. The UK is also making some changes to border control health measures for travellers arriving from some designated counties.

“The process for considering changes to Travel Advice takes into account a wide range of factors, including the entry requirements of that country, the availability of transport options and quarantine requirements,” it said.
“Sri Lanka has not been exempted from the Global Travel Advisory or border restrictions at this initial stage. This first review is part of a gradual and ongoing process of opening up global travel routes and relaxing border restrictions, and will be kept under constant close review to ensure it reflects the latest situation. The UK hopes to add other countries to the exemption list as conditions allow, the statement added.

    This is an indication whether the other countries are accepting our COVID infection statistics are reliable.

    This is how they discriminate, when the country does not ready to dance to their tune. It has got nothing to do with the statistics .

    John Stewart Sunday, 05 July 2020 11:31 AM

    That is very discriminatory. Sri Lanka has better figures for Covid-19 cases and deaths than the UK and ALL of the EU countries.

    we do not do community testing and are in denial. So honestly, dont need Brits here infecting people - do we?

    Because we killed their love prabhakaran

    Jim Caldwell Sunday, 05 July 2020 08:23 PM

    That's just silly. As Sri Lanka isn't allowing British people in at the moment there's plenty of time for discussion.

    Sambo Sunday, 05 July 2020 06:55 PM

    No. It is just because we talk too much and act less. So why don't you come up speak saying who wants to go to England. Where is WW and Panmanwilla?

    UK trusts Thailand and Rwanda but not former colony Lanka Lol

    It appears EU and UK are not accepting the Corona count of the Sri Lankan government.

    This is because sirlanka did not vote for Canada at the UN to get a site.

    They can't stomach the success of Sri Lanka in controlling the covid 19, under the present regime. That is something they simply can't bear to see along with their European and US allies.
