Sri Lankan Travel Advisory Lowered



The Australian Travel Advisory for Sri Lanka has officially been lowered yesterday from a Level 3 (Reconsider your need to travel) to a Level 2 (Exercise a high degree of caution), indicating that the country is progressing towards a state of normalcy and whilst still cautious with high levels of security in place. The lowering follows the UK’s lifting of its travel ban last week, with the German, Swiss and Austrian governments relaxing their advice against Sri Lankan travel the week prior.


“Tourism is the most significant part of our economy, supporting one in 10 families in Sri Lanka, so the relaxation of the advisory is excellent news. We have a close connection with Australia as one of our fastest growing inbound markets and look forward to welcoming visitors back with open arms. We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of support over the past month.” said Malik Fernando, Owner of tour company Resplendent Ceylon

With one in 10 families relying on tourism to make a living, it is a vital part of the country’s economy so the warning’s reduction is a welcome note as the country is dependent on the likes of Australians to visit.
