All travellers need to buy the local Covid 19-insurance.

We would also recommend anyone travelling to have their own Travel Insurance in addition to this. A good travel insurance will have you covered in case of last minute cancellation, by accidents, thefts or other things that can happen during your travel in Sri Lanka.

Do you need PCR test before exit Sri Lanka?

Sri Lanka does not have a rule about testing before you exit the country. It is not required to have a negative test to enter Bandaranaike International Airport.

However, the country you are flying to might require a negative test before boarding the flight. Also some airlines require a negative test before flying.

🚩Please check with the country of destination and the airline you booked with what you need to arrange.
