Singapore relaxes travel advise on Sri Lanka

Singapore has relaxed its Travel Advisory on Sri Lanka from defer all non-essential travels to exercise caution, the Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry said today.

Meanwhile, the Singapore Government noted that since the Easter Sunday bomb attacks on 21 April 2019, there have been no further major security incidents in Sri Lanka.

“There is still the risk of terrorist cells existing and the State of Emergency remains in force. Security has been tightened at key installations including places of worship, tourist locations and airports,” the Singapore Government said.

Singaporeans travelling to Sri Lanka have been advised to exercise caution and if they are already in Sri Lanka, they have been strongly advised to stay vigilant and take all necessary precautions for their personal safety, including to monitor the news closely and heed the instructions of the local authorities.

“You should avoid public places where there are large gatherings of people. Do stay in touch with your family and friends so that they know you are safe. You should also purchase comprehensive travel insurance and be familiar with the terms and coverage,” the Singapore Government said. (Colombo Gazette)
