Four audit companies with international experience in the health and hospitality industry has been shortlisted by the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) to outsource the COVID-19 safety standard compliance certification process for hotels. The Government in June decided on the introduction of COVID-19 safety standard compliance certification for all SLTDA registered entities. The certification will be issued post a strict inspection and auditing process under the purview of the Health Ministry and will be open to all accommodation providers and travel agents registered with the SLTDA. The move is an effort to reassure foreign visitors considering Sri Lanka as their next holiday destination post pandemic.
