Fully vaccinated travellers for COVID-19 arriving in Sri Lanka from overseas will not be required to undergo PCR or Rapid Antigen Tests prior to arrival from March 01, 2022.

However, partially-vaccinated or unvaccinated tourists are still required to submit a negative RT-PCR test result within 72 hours of their travel date.

The revised guidelines have been issued by the Ministry of Health.
