Germany, Switzerland and Sweden tone down travel advisories

Following China relaxing the adverse travel advisory against Sri Lanka from ‘do not travel’ to ‘be cautious’, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden too has relaxed travel advisories in the aftermath of Easter Sunday bombings last month.

The three European countries too have toned down their travel advisory from ‘do not travel’ to ‘be cautious’ while traveling. Switzerland is the first country in Europe to relax its travel advisory.

President Maithripala Sirisena met foreign Ambassadors on Tuesday and requested that they re look at toning down the travel advisories while Tourism Minister John Amaratunge and SLTDA Chairman Kishu Gomes, had also met the US, UK, German, Indian and Chinese Ambassadors and spoke to them about the adverse travel advisories imposed by them. In addition to China, Germany too is a large source market for tourism and toning down these advisors would have a major positive impact on Sri Lanka leisure sector.
