The US diplomatic staff adhere carefully to Sri Lankan COVID-19 guidelines including quarantine restrictions in close coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Relations, a US Embassy spokesman said.   

The spokesman made these remarks in response to a query about the Foreign Relations Ministry issuing guidelines for foreign diplomats arriving in the country. The Ministry announced earlier that PCR tests at the airport would be compulsory for all inbound foreign diplomats.   


The spokesman said, “The arrival of the US diplomatic staff in Sri Lanka also complies with the norms and procedures outlined in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, just as it applies to arrival of Sri Lankan and other diplomatic staff in the US. We refer you to the Ministry of Foreign Relations for information on their guidelines for the personnel who arrive on diplomatic missions. These guidelines, to which all inbound US personnel should strictly adhere, apply and it is applicable to other foreign missions as well”.
