* Entry requirement for Sri Lankans lifted
Wed, Apr 7, 2021, 09:31 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 07, Colombo: The Foreign Ministry announced that under the directive of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, it reviewed the entry procedure on Tuesday, 06 April 2021, as a measure of relief for prospective Sri Lankan returnees.

Under the new procedure, Sri Lankans, dual citizens who travel on Sri Lankan passports, spouses and unmarried children of Sri Lankans, who are foreigners, and Sri Lankan seafarers arriving by air will be permitted to enter into Sri Lanka without prior approval of the Foreign Ministry and the Civil Aviation Authority.

The responsibility of maintaining a manageable number of passenger arrivals has however been entrusted with the Civil Aviation Authority, who will, through the respective airlines, regulate the numbers in a manner that would cope with the local capacities of quarantining and other logistics required.

All arriving passengers will be required to strictly adhere to health protocols and guidelines that are effective at the time of arrival.
