Registration for Travel

The procedure for entry into Sri Lanka has been reviewed and new guidelines have been applied with effect from 06 April 2021.

Accordingly, the following categories of persons will be permitted to enter Sri Lanka without prior approval of the Foreign Ministry and the Civil Aviation Authority:

  1. Sri Lankans (including Sri Lankan seafarers arriving by air)
  2. Dual Citizens who travel on Sri Lankan Passports
  3. Foreign spouses of Sri Lankans
  4. Unmarried children of Sri Lankans, who are foreign nationals

Ex-Sri Lankans holding foreign passports (who do not hold Dual Citizenship) and travelling to Sri Lanka for family visits/family emergencies should continue to obtain prior approval.  Such persons may register with the High Commission to obtain Foreign Ministry/Civil Aviation Authority approval.
