D6 15 February 1995


The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has reviewed its Travel Advice for Sri Lanka issued on 11 October 1994 and advises that, notwithstanding the current cessation of hostilities, there is still a state of emergency in force in the northern eastern provinces. Travel to these provinces should be avoided.

Road blocks and other government security measures which may cause some inconvenience are likely to be encountered.

Australians are advised to exercise due care when travelling in Sri Lanka and to register their presence with the Australian High Commission, 3 Cambridge Place, Colombo 7 (Telephone 698767) which is able to provide advice on current developments.
