I am looking to go travelling in Sri Lanka this summer (with the potential for visiting nearby countries as well such as the Maldives/ Nepal). I have always avoided going to South East Asia because of the amount countries like Thailand are known for using peanuts and especially peanut oil in their cooking. Is Sri Lanka just as 'bad' as Thailand in this respect or would it be a safer option? I would welcome any advice about travelling with a severe peanut allergy to Sri Lanka (and potentially Nepal and the Maldives too).

Many thanks,

Hi Nia

Thank you for your post.

I'm afraid I cannot say which country would be a better option for travelling abroad with a peanut allergy.
We do have translation cards which may help you however you would need to check with your travel agent which language is spoken in Sri Lanka.
If you would like further information about this please call our helpline or send a message via webchat.
Kind regards
Allergy UK
