Restrictions imposed on the number of passengers allowed onboard a flight arriving in Sri Lanka have been lifted.
The Civil Aviation Authority said the directive is effective as of the 7th of October.
A maximum of 75 passengers were previously permitted on a flight.
The Civil Aviation Authority said accordingly domestic and international airlines will be permitted to carry any number of passengers to Sri Lanka onboard a single flight.
However, although Sri Lanka was opened for passengers who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, based on health guidelines issued by the Director General of Health Services, passengers who are unvaccinated will have to undergo mandatory quarantine for 14 days.
