Japan relaxes travel advisory

Oct 15, 2010 1:51:18 PM - itnnews.lk

The Japanese Government has further relaxed its travel advisory on its national’s visiting the Northern Provinces of Sri Lanka today.

An embassy statement said the security cautionary level in Jaffna, Kilinochchi, Vavuniya and Mannar cities were reduced on par with the City of Colombo. Accordingly the revised travel advisory has been categorized on the level of “Travel Caution” (Level 1), which advises Japanese national to stay alert to the security situation and take the necessary precautions. Travel to the areas in the Northern Provinces other than those already mentioned would prevail at the level of “Recommendation to consider whether or not to travel” (Level 2), due to the mine clearing activities which are in progress.
