Tips in sending a Parcel to Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka always had tension before and after the British occupation. In the 1980s, Independence only made the conflicts grow when civil war started in the said year. Unfortunately, tourism was affected during this period. 20 million citizens were affected by this but the 2010 election tried to solve the issues although some conflicts remained still.

Despite all of these, Sri Lanka has made it possible to create a democratic socialist system complete with a president and a parliament. Citizens also remained well educated and made sure they had a strong standard of living. This has made them an important trade partner for British companies. They have a strong connection with the US and have a military force that is focused on keeping the internal security refuse civil unrest.

Because of its location, Sri Lanka had been a strong trade partner for centuries. Their focus is still mainly on agriculture which produces crops such as rubber, tea and sugar. Their government has gone back and forth in creating strategies and policies which still has uncertain results in the economy.

They have been trying to focus on other aspects such as modern commodities, financial markets, manufacturing, clothing and food production. They depend on the reasoning of the present government power. They have been trying to shift in being a more open market and a controlled economic policy which makes growth uncertain.

Import Restrictions

Sri Lanka is not always clear about the items that customers are not able to send just like any other trade partners. They have a website you can check but looking for the information you need can still be a little challenging.

Good thing, some couriers provide lists of some of the items that they were not able to carry in the past like:

  • Chemicals
  • Gas
  • Ice
  • Paint poison
  • Flammable
  • Radioactive materials

It is still not clear though if these are general prohibitions that Sri Lanka implies. Since they do not release their rules regarding their policies in importing goods, the following list came from the 70 different laws released in 1977 and these might be the clearest rules regarding the import restriction.

  • Plants
  • Cosmetics
  • Live fish
  • Coconut products
  • Bottled water
  • Foreign money
  • Food
  • Animals
  • Animal products
  • Passage baggage
  • Ozone depleting substances

The country is a promising target for British trade given its historic connection between United Kingdom. Please do some research before sending any parcel to Sri Lanka even if they implement an open trade policy.
