Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is called the “teardrop of India”. Sri Lanka is home to many cultural riches in a small area; with ancient cities, exquisite food and golden beaches. The cultural triangle of Sigiriya, Dambulla and Anurhadhapura is high up on people’s tourist itineraries. Whether you plan on elephant spotting in Una Walawe, visiting the Temple of the Tooth at Kandy, or relaxing on one of Sri-Lanka’s sun-kissed beaches, travelers should seek pre-travel advice to ensure they stay healthy whilst abroad.

It is recommended that all travellers are up to date with their routine immunisations. All travellers should ensure that they have received a vaccination against diphtheria, tetanus and polio in the last 10 years. All travellers are advised to ensure they have been vaccinated against Hepatitis A and Typhoid.

There is no risk of Yellow Fever, however proof of vaccination will be required if entering from a country that has a risk of Yellow Fever.

There may be a need for additional immunisations. Depending on the nature of the trip, destinations visited, duration of travel and activities, other vaccinations could be considered. These include:-

There is low/no risk of malaria in Sri Lanka and therefore anti-malarial medication is not advised.

Prevention against insect bites is essential.

Precautions against food and water borne illnesses should be sought.
