Restrictions have been imposed on Indian tourists arriving in Sri Lanka, the Tourism Ministry said today.
Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga said that Indian tourists visit Sri Lanka in a travel bubble.
He said that since the coronavirus crisis in New Delhi the number of Indians visiting Sri Lanka has been reduced.
The Minister also said that the Indians are placed in separate hotels and have no contact with other tourists.
Ranatunga also said that any decision on closing the airports or reducing the overall number of arrivals to Sri Lanka will be taken if the health authorities make such a request.
He however said that the airport cannot be closed immediately as that will affect Sri Lankans returning to the country.
The Minister said that President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has issued instructions to allow Sri Lankan migrant workers to return to the country. (Colombo Gazette)
