After France, UPI to be Accepted in Another Country, Making Travel Cashless

Sri Lanka Accepts UPI: The Indian government’s push to expand the popular UPI payment service beyond its borders has led to yet another success, with Sri Lanka joining the list of countries adopting this convenient mobile-based payment system. In a significant agreement signed between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe, UPI payments will now be available for travelers in Sri Lanka.

With UPI, customers can make instant payments using their Virtual Payment Address (VPA) at any time of the day. This move comes as a welcome convenience for Indian travelers, as UPI is already operational in countries like Singapore, UAE, Nepal, Bhutan, and France.

The UPI service will commence in France, starting from the iconic Eiffel Tower, where visitors can purchase tickets using their Rupay cards. During his visit to France, PM Modi had announced the extension of UPI payments to the European country, showcasing the growing acceptance of this user-friendly payment method on the global stage.

In addition to the UPI service, discussions have also taken place between India and Sri Lanka regarding the establishment of a petroleum line and land bridge connectivity. India had previously provided vital assistance to Sri Lanka, offering a $4 billion package, including a loan, to help the neighboring country combat its economic crisis by facilitating the purchase of food and fuel.

The latest agreement with Sri Lanka further strengthens India’s efforts to promote secure and real-time cross-border payments. As UPI continues to gain traction worldwide, it promises to make international travel easier and more convenient for Indian citizens.
