What type of adapter do I need for the outlets?

Sri Lanka uses power outlets and plugs of types D & G. Click here to see how they look like.

Type D – Mostly used in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka and a few African countries. No other plug types will fit in a type D socket.

Type G – From British origin, mainly used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Malta, Malaysia and Singapore, but also in quite a few other countries. No other plug types fit into an outlet of type G.

If this is not the type of power outlets you use back a home, you will need an adaper. You can buy one online or at your local store.

All power sockets in Sri Lanka provide a standard voltage of 230V with a standard frequency of 50Hz.

You can use all your equipment in Sri Lanka if the outlet voltage in your own country is between 220V-240V. This is the case in most of Europe, Australia, the United Kingdom and most countries in Africa and Asia.

If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100V-127V (which is most common in the US, Canada and countries in South America) you might need a voltage converter in Sri Lanka.

The standard frequency in Sri Lanka is 50Hz. If this frequency differs from the frequency used in your home country, please use caution when plugging in your devices.
