The UK Foreign Office has updated its guidance for Brits travelling to Sri Lanka and is again advising against all but essential travel to the island.
The FCDO said the update is ‘due to the impact of the current economic crisis’.
It comes days after the FCDO issued a fresh warning that the country’s fuel and food crisis was deepening.
It warns: “Further protests, demonstrations, roadblocks and violent unrest could occur at short notice.”
It’s the second time this year the FCDO has warned against non-essential travel to Sri Lanka. The first warning was made in May.
The FCDO lifted the ban on 10 June, but warned UK travellers to check local information and stay away from protests.
As before, the advice does not apply to airside transit through Sri Lanka’s international airport in Colombo.
