Switzerland on May 27 updated its travel advisory on Sri Lanka from "avoid unnecessary travel to Sri Lanka" to "In Sri Lanka travellers must be very vigilant about their personal safety." 

India's travel advisory was updated on Tuesday from being advised against "non essential travel" to being asked to "be careful and vigilant" when travelling to Sri Lanka. (Sunimalee)
