Kochi: Sri Lanka has opened its borders for international tourists. As per the new guidelines, the island nation will now be accepting fully vaccinated travellers from all countries including India. All travellers arriving in Sri Lanka, who are fully vaccinated and hold a negative PCR from point of origin will not be required to do a PCR test on arrival in Colombo and can commence their travel and holiday in Sri Lanka.

Indian travellers can avail the special "buy one and get one free" offer that was introduced by SriLankan Airlines last month. The offer is valid for all the seating categories and is applicable on the bookings made for flights between India & Colombo for leisure travel. This offer will be valid on bookings made until 31st October 2021 and through SriLankan Holidays or SriLankan Airlines website.

The announcement offer would enable the India leisure travellers to explore numerous attractions available in Sri Lanka after the country relaxed the travel regulations to the tourists. The discounted air tickets together with special incentives offered by the Sri Lankan industry partners would indeed influence Indian holidaymakers to choose Sri Lanka as the ideal & most easily accessible destination to travel.
