Minister Prasanna Ranatunga says that the complete reopening of airports may be delayed due to the increased number of registrations to arrive in the country.
Previously it was targeted to reopen the airports in Sri Lanka from August 01 and the country will be open for tourists.
Considering that situation, the date of complete reopening may be postponed to after August 15 or towards the end of August, said the Minister.
However, Ranatunga said that they will try their best to reopen the airports by August 01.
Persons visiting the country must be subjected to PCR testing both in the country from which they are visiting and at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) in Sri Lanka.
If the PCR test results are positive they will be hospitalized while the rest will be quarantined for 14 days. Between the 7th and the 10th day of the mandatory quarantine, they will be tested again and released if the results are negative for COVID-19, said the Minister.
