International travel

Sri Lanka is now open to tourists from all countries. Sri Lanka Minister of Tourism Prasanna Ranatunga made the official announcement during a press conference on Thursday, confirming they would reopen the country's borders from January 21. Both of the country's international airports reopened on the same day.

The Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau has set up what it calls a “Safe and Secure” bubble mandating pre-departure PCR tests for tourists, restricting their stay to designated high-end hotels and beach resorts, and allowing access to select tourist spots, to limit visitors from mixing with the local community.
