Australia Embassy offers flights for staff to leave

The families of Australians employed at the High Commission in Colombo have been open flights out of the country, amid the danger of more terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka.

A Department of Foreign Affairs representative said “voluntary departures to return to Australia” were available for charges of embassy staff and for volunteers in the country working under the Australian Volunteers International (AVI) program.

“We continue to inform all Australians in or travelling to Sri Lanka to consider the travel advice, including volunteers and volunteer organizations,” a DFAT representative.

Many families have been forced to limit their daily travel in light of the Australian Government’s travel advice for Sri Lanka, which urges Australians to “minimize movement until the situation stabilizes”.
