About Sri Lanka - Foreign Embassies in Sri Lanka
|As a tourist, it is always important to know what your own embassy (the embassy of the country of which you are a citizen) in Sri Lanka can and cannot do to help you if you need help during unfortunate circumstances.|
Generally speaking, most embassies are not very helpful if the trouble you are in is remotely your own fault. Remember that you are bound by the laws of the country you are in. Your embassy will not be sympathetic if you are end up in the jail after committing a crime locally, even if such actions are legal in the country you are citizen of.
In genuine emergencies you must get some assistance, only if all other cannels have been exhausted. For example, you lost your return ticket and do not money to by a new ticket, a free ticket home is exceedingly unlikely – the embassy would expect you to have travel insurance. However, if you have your documentation stolen, the embassy should help you to get a new passport.
