'Tourists can visit without any inconvenience'

'Tourists can visit without any inconvenience'

Sri Lanka Tourism said the unrest was confined to the Kandy area and that it was safe for foreign tourists to visit.

 

“Tourists can visit without any inconvenience,” said the tourist board in a statement. “Members of the travel and hospitality industries will facilitate travel plans.

 

“Intermittent curfews imposed by police have no impact on tourists. Tourists can use foreign passports as passes in the event of a curfew.”

 

Although the Foreign Office is not advising Britons avoid the country in its latest advice, and stresses there are no reports other tourist areas are affected, it is urging visitors exercise caution, avoid protests and rallies and follow the advice of the local authorities.

 

Anyone in the country should consult the Sri Lankan Tourism Development Authority website.
