It uses a Virtual Payment Address (VPA) for transactions. With UPI, people can conveniently make payments in Sri Lanka, just like in India, simplifying their travel experience.

In 2022, India provided significant assistance to Sri Lanka, including a $4 billion loan, to help the neighboring country cope with economic challenges.
