The UK has amended its travel advice on Sri Lanka. Due to the effects of the present economic crisis, the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) recommends against all but essential travel to Sri Lanka. Airside transit through the international airport of Sri Lanka is not covered by this recommendation.
The severe economic crisis that Sri Lanka is going through has caused shortages of essential needs like food, cooking gas, and medicine. Fuel (diesel and petrol) is severely limited, which has an impact on transportation, companies, and emergency services. Daily power outages occur as a result of electricity rationing. Protests and violent turmoil have resulted from this. Roadblocks, violent unrest, riots, and demonstrations could all happen at any time.
