The Government is making arrangements to facilitate the return of Sri Lankans residing and working in Seychelles in compliance with the existing regulations and availability of quarantine facilities in the country, the Foreign Ministry said.

It said the Sri Lanka High Commission in Seychelles has been continuously liaising with the Sri Lankan community members and has taken the initiative to appoint a Joint Committee under the leadership of the Mission which includes the Sri Lankan Association, Seychelles Buddhist Association, and the Lakstar Cricket Club, to render support to Sri Lankans who are in need of assistance.

Sri Lanka High Commission in Seychelles said in a statement that the Mission has also distributed food supplies to the community upon their request and has established a 24-hour hotline through which Sri Lankans can constantly reach the Mission.

The Mission has continuously maintained communication with the many Sri Lankans who have registered at the Mission conveying their interest in returning to Sri Lanka having already purchased air tickets, due to loss of employment, termination of employment contracts and the need for urgent medical treatment. Many are presently scattered among the five islands in Seychelles.

There has been only one active case of COVID-19 as of 11 May 2020 in the Seychelles and the country has not recorded any COVID-19 cases since the 11th positive case was detected on 6 April 2020.
