ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka has started an online health declaration where passengers can fill in the data, submit the information to the airport before arrival, and could also save a QR code provided by the system and submit it at the health counter, the island’s airport agency said.
“The prime objective of introducing this system is to reduce the usage of physical form filling and encourage the passengers to opt in to an online platform reducing the physical contact and passenger processing time,” state-run Airport and Aviation Services Ltd, said in a statement.
AASL said this will also give them information about the passengers before they arrive while reducing queuing time.
Passengers can access the form and fill it on the airport’s website. They must also attach related documents such as the vaccination card on the 1st dose and the 2nd dose and a COVID-19 test report done within 72 hours prior to departure.
The system can be accessed via the following link on AASL website (www.airport.lk). https://www.airport.lk/health_declaration/index
After the submission, the passengers will get an email with a QR code which they will have to produce at the health declaration counter at the airport. (Colombo/Oct26/2021)
