The enchanting allure of Sri Lanka lies not just in its breathtaking beaches and the azure Indian Ocean that cradles it, but also in its profound cultural heritage, storied past, and the abundant biodiversity that thrives within its bounds. This island nation has become a favoured vacation spot for travellers from India and beyond. In February 2024, it was announced that Sri Lanka was considering extending its visa exemption for Indian travellers beyond March to maintain its allure and entice more frequent visits from the Indian market. The latest development is that Sri Lanka has decided to continue offering visa-free entry to tourists from India and six other selected countries in a bid to increase tourist arrivals.
