Switzerland relaxes travel restrictions on Sri Lanka

Switzerland has updated its travel advisory to Sri Lanka as the security situation in the island has improved.

The Department of Foreign Affairs has advised its travellers to be very vigilant about their personal safety.

The travel advisory cautioned that the political and social tensions are high and they can trigger violent clashes at any time and throughout the country. It is to be expected that the political situation will remain tense until the national elections in December 2019, it said.
