Sri Lanka has been let off relatively lightly as the world adjusts to a global pandemic. And a well-established and warm-hearted tourism industry makes this tropical escape ideally placed to look after your needs. Sri Lanka reopened its borders to international tourists on 21st January 2021, with a series of protocols and guidelines in place to ensure the safety of both visitors and residents as tourism resumes. Whilst there are certain restrictions in place, every effort has been made to ensure that visitors can still have an enjoyable and safe experience here.

Your transport should be organised by a certified travel agent and should be completely private, with no mixing of groups during your journeys.
