How will post-Covid travel be like in Sri Lanka?
Do I need to take PCR tests to travel to Sri Lanka in 2021?
These are the most asked questions at the moment. The good news right now is that the Airport has been open since January 21. Actually more than 10.000 tourists have arrived so far this year. A new update in the rules in April, makes it easier to travel to Sri Lanka if you are vaccinated. I will go through all in this article.
Last update. April 7 2021:
The first update, January 2021:
First of all I just want to say that the rules are really strict now in the beginning – January 2021.
I am positive that the rules will be eased, possibly before the the summer. As we, hopefully, will se the Covid 19 situation around the world will be more under control, and more people will be vaccinated.
And definitely before the next winter season – November & December 2021 – hopefully it will be much easier for people to come on holiday to Sri Lanka.

The best reason to travel in 2021?
I believe this might be a chance in a life time to experience Sri Lanka without lot of tourists.
You can go to famous sights and places like Sigiriya, Dambulla, Kandy, Ella and Yala safari – and still stay away from crowds.
