Minister of tourism and religion of Sri-Lanka declared that the country would start issuing visas on arrival for tourists of 45 countries, including Russia. The measure has been taken because of the serious decline of tourists' flow after the terrorists’ attack in April 2019. Initially it was planned to start on 01.05.2019, but it was paused on security reasons. The new visa rules entered into force on 01.08.2019 and act during six months. According to Sri Lanka tourism bureau, Russia is in the list of top -10 countries of number of tourists. More than 64 000 Russians visited the island in 2018, which is 9% increase in comparison to 2017.
