The UK Government has updated its advice on travel to Sri Lanka after the destination dropped its requirement for visitors to have COVID-19 travel insurance.
But the FCDO reiterated that people still need to take out comprehensive travel insurance before travelling abroad.
The FCDO lifted its advice against all but essential travel to Sri Lanka earlier this month, although in an update on Monday it warned of an increase in violent protests around fuel stations.
Sri Lanka has closed schools and halted all non-essential government services as it begins a two-week shutdown to conserve fuel reserves, AFP news agency reports.
It added Sri Lanka is currently in talks with the International Monetary Fund about a possible bailout.
