Determined not to let recent terrorist attacks dictate the global narrative of their country, the Sri Lankan government is reducing airline charges and waiving visa fees in a bid to boost tourism and shine a light on all the island has to offer. Visitors to the island for tourism or business travel over the next six months will be able to obtain a visa free of charge, valid for up to one month, while hotels across the country are also offering great added value alongside reduced rates.
