Due to social and political unrest in the country, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against all travel to Sri Lanka which is not strictly necessary.

Sri Lanka is in a difficult economic crisis due to high food prices, frequent power outages, and lack of fuel.

“The situation is unstable and unpredictable, and the authorities have introduced a state of emergency and curfew throughout the country. There have been violent demonstrations in several parts of the country. The embassy in Colombo has limited opportunities to assist Norwegians who are in the country,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs wrote on Wednesday. 

They encourage Norwegians who are already in the country to follow the situation closely.

“We recommend that you contact your insurance company to check that the travel insurance is still valid,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted.
