Wed, Jun 14, 2017, 01:42 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 14, Colombo: Amid the heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals the Foreign Office has updated the travel advisory on Sri Lanka as it has for countries around the world.

Changes have been made to the UK's travel advice for Sri Lanka following a global review of the way in which the UK government describes the threat from terrorism in travel advice for all countries and territories.

However, there is no change in the UK government's assessment of the level of threat from terrorism in Sri Lanka.

"This has been done as part of a global review of the way the threat from terrorism is described in our travel advice for British nationals. We have made these changes to ensure that British nationals have clear information on this important issue," the British High Commissioner in Sri Lanka James Dauris said in a social media post.

British travelers to Sri Lankan have also been advised about the recent flooding and monsoon rains and directed them to see the Sri Lanka Disaster Management Centre website for the latest updates on flooding and seek local advice before travelling to affected areas as heavy rains and landslips have led to road closures affecting local transport links.
