Sri Lanka removes the requirement for a PCR test before arriving in the country
The Sri Lankan government has confirmed that fully vaccinated people will no longer be required to take a negative PCR test. This measure will take effect on Tuesday, March 1.
The rules will apply to people who have both doses of the vaccine given. People under the age of 18 will be able to travel with a single dose of vaccine.
The vaccine must be given at least two months before the trip. It should be mentioned that it should be approved by the government of Sri Lanka.
Unvaccinated passengers will still be required to submit a negative PCR test performed no later than 72 hours prior to boarding. They will also be able to perform an antigen test up to 48 hours before boarding. (self-testing not supported)
Travelers in the UK will be required to submit a printed letter to confirm their status, as the NHS application will not be accepted. Covid-19 travel insurance is mandatory for all visitors and must be purchased if existing policies do not provide the necessary coverage.
