Restrictions imposed on foreigners visiting the North have been lifted with immediate effect. Director General of the Media Centre for National Security Lakshman Hulugalla said that passport holders earlier had to seek permission from the Defence Ministry to visit the North. But this regulation was withdrawn with effect from yesterday. He said the Defence Ministry has decided to grant permission to passport holders to visit the North including Jaffna. He added that everyone can now visit any part of the country without seeking permission.
