Colombo: Sri Lanka’s Tourism Ministry said on Thursday that it has kept its new visa-on-arrival programme on hold until further notice due to the security situation in the island nation following the Easter Sunday bombings.
The programme was expected to be implemented from May 1 for tourists from over 30 countries, reports Xinhua news agency. “Investigations have revealed foreign links to the attacks and we do not want this facility to be abused,” Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Christian Religious Affairs John Amaratunga said.
