Travel Advisory to Sri Lanka

July 2, 2019

Further to its notice of 23rd April 2019, the Department of Foreign Affairs announces a new travel advisory to Seychellois intending to travel to Sri Lanka.

According to Sri Lankan authorities, the situation is now under control. Curfews have been lifted and, although the state of emergency is still in place, it mainly serves to empower the security forces to arrest and detain criminals.

Seychellois who choose to travel to Sri Lanka should exercise maximum precaution. Be alert, avoid crowded places, always be in possession of travel documents; as much as possible, take travel or medical insurance.
