The UK Government warned Tuesday (05) against routine travel to Sri Lanka as the South Asian country, a popular destination for British tourists, battles economic collapse.
The updated advice from the Foreign Ministry could invalidate travel insurance for any Britons still heading to Sri Lanka.
The Ministry said it, “Advises against all but essential travel to Sri Lanka, due to the impact of the current economic crisis”.
Sri Lanka is experiencing shortages of food and fuel, with unrest breaking out, it noted.
“Further protests, demonstrations, roadblocks and violent unrest could occur at short notice.”
