Sri Lankan tours: Get the right documents and vaccinations on time!

When planning a trip to Sri Lanka, it is not enough to create a list of places you want to visit. The responsible traveler also finds information on the recommended vaccination, safety situation and observes the duties that he must follow as a tourist. Adequate insurance is also a matter of course.

A couple of injections for sure

Before you travel to Sri Lanka, you should check the vaccinations you have and go through a series of recommended vaccinations for that site. On a suitable vaccination plan, talk to your doctor in time to get all the necessary doses before leaving. You should be protected against:
Japanese encephalitis,
hepatitis A,

In addition, antimalarial is recommended during this stay. If you arrive in Sri Lanka from areas with a yellow fever (eg from Africa), you must have an international vaccination certificate to prove vaccination against this disease.

Insurance is not unnecessary

When you arrive in Sri Lanka, think that the body will need time for acclimatization. Its length is individual, sometimes takes up to two weeks. You may feel tired and apathetic and suffer from headaches. Local stomach problems often occur when you switch to local food. So drink a lot to prevent dehydration of the body. Only packaged beverages are safe. If, despite complying with basic hygiene rules and regime measures, you will have health problems in Sri Lanka, be aware that normal medical care is not as high as in the Czech Republic. The appropriate medical facility is best recommended by your insurance company's helpdesk. As with any other foreign trip, it is advisable to have agreed travel insurance. Appropriately chosen spending limits on medical expenses and assistance services can save you not only unexpected expenses but also organizational complications while traveling. Insurance, of course, should also take into account the type of activities you will be taking during your Asian trip.

Obligations of the traveler

Although Sri Lanka is a touristy country, the embassy does not recommend traveling to the northern part of the island for safety reasons. Whether you are spending time in a resort or traveling around the country, it is important to pay close attention to your personal affairs, especially to your passport. This must be valid for a minimum of 180 days on the day of arrival. In addition to your passport, you must be able to show your return ticket on arrival and show sufficient funds for your entire stay. Another obligation for travelers is electronic registration in the Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA), which must be done before arriving in Sri Lanka. You can take it over the internet or make it a travel agency.

Conditions for entering and staying in Sri Lanka, as well as security situations and health recommendations, may vary based on current events. If you carefully monitor this information, you can avoid many inconveniences and enjoy the traveler's experience.
