Currently, Sri Lanka travel restrictions include travel to Colombo. Entry to Sri Lanka is currently prohibited for all non-nationals and residents. Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB) is only accepting certain special categories of flights including repatriation flights, emergency diversion flights, humanitarian aid flights, freighter operations, and technical landings. All arriving travelers must submit completed Health Declaration Forms to public health inspectors or other authorized officials. The maximum allowed transit time at CMB is 10 hours. Passengers must have a confirmed onward connection. Airline crew must self-quarantine at the location mentioned in the Health Declaration Form and have meals only through in-room dining until they operate their next flight. Visas and ETAs issued by Sri Lanka have been invalidated. 14-day quarantine is mandatory for all those traveling into Sri Lanka, followed by 14 days self-isolation at home. Those entering must undergo temperature checks at the airport. All entrants must now take a PCR test. If you are planning to travel to Colombo at this time, it is recommended that you stay up to date on current restrictions and follow proper safety measures while in public.
