The temporary travel restriction introduced by the Government on travels originating from the United Kingdom to Sri Lanka due to the new Covid -19 Variant in the UK has been lifted with immediate effect.
“At a meeting presided by the President, it was decided to relax the restrictions on travels from UK subject to 14 days of quarantine and PCR tests determined by the Health Authorities,” the Foreign Ministry announced.
The tourist arrivals from the UK too will resume under the guidelines introduced by the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau.

    Just can not believe this. Why does the government in Sri Lanka not protect its citizens?

    Good decision cos more than 20 million of UK population have already got vaccinated. But UK has a travel ban and very soon travel abroad would only be permitted to people with a vaccine certificate or called Vaccine passport.

    Why are not only vaccinated people allowed to enter Sri Lanka after a waiting period of 4 weeks, regardless of which country they come from? After another test at the airport, these people should be allowed to move freely around the country. All other regulations like bubble and so on are dilettantish and pointless. Even SriLankan should only let vaccinated people on board their aircrafts.
