Tourism Minister of Sri Lanka, Prasanna Ranatunga, told the press, that the nation is trying to rebuild the tourism industry which was affected by the 2019 Easter Sunday bombings that killed about 258 people. As a security measure, the Sri Lankan government has decided to stop offering visa-on-arrival to citizens of 39 countries. It had gone on to levying a fee of USD 20 for all the South Asian travellers and tourists along with USD 35 for other travellers from all across the world.
