All repatriation and charter flights from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Sri Lanka have been temporarily suspended due to the unforeseen escalation of Covid-19 cases in Sri Lanka, the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi announced.

The Embassy, along with the Sri Lanka Consulate General’s Office in Dubai, urged Sri Lankan community members in the UAE, who are looking forward to going back to Sri Lanka, to be patient until repatriation flight operations resume shortly.

Further, the procedure of the repatriation operations will be notified in due course, the notice issued by the Embassy read.
