Sri Lanka Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga said that no decision has been taken to stop tourists from Ukraine.
The Minister added that the decision to stop bringing tourists from Ukraine or any other country to Sri Lanka would be taken by the Covid Committee and the health authorities.
Currently, only tourists from England are temporarily restricted from entering Sri Lanka, and therefore, tourists can be brought in from any country except England during the period of the pilot project on opening the country for foreign tourists.
Minister Prasanna Ranatunga said that the airport will be opened for commercial flights after 21st January.
To quote Ranatunga, “We have created new guidelines based on the Health Guidelines issued to travelers by the World Health Organization and International Civil Aviation Organization. The health authorities in our country have studied all these very carefully and have developed a guideline for tourists. According to that guideline, anyone can bring tourists. Every tourist visiting this country should follow the country’s health guidelines. We have made it very clear to the relevant tourism organizers. We will closely monitor the process of attracting tourists to this country.”
