Tourists to Sri Lanka require mandatory travel insurance, including COVID cover

The Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka (CAASL) has said that Sri Lankan passport holders do not require the COVID-19 Insurance coverage when travelling to Sri Lanka.

However, all Tourist Visa holders require mandatory Sri Lanka COVID-19 Insurance coverage to be purchased online or on arrival.

All Tourist visa holders require a travel Insurance coverage for a minimum of USD 50,000, including cover for hospitalised treatment for COVID-19 infection.

The COVID-19 Insurance coverage is not required to board an aircraft but upon landing in Sri Lanka if the tourist visa holder is not carrying the COVID-19 Insurance coverage for a minimum of USD 50,000, he/she must purchase the policy prior to leaving the respective airport in Sri Lanka, it said.
