Sri Lanka has reopened its borders after closing ten months ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau has set up what it calls a “Safe and Secure” bubble, mandating pre-departure PCR tests for tourists, restricting their stay to designated high-end hotels and beach resorts, and allowing access to select tourist spots, to limit visitors from mixing with the local community.

Highlights of Sri Lanka’s Safe Travels protocols include: no minimum number of days required for a stay; no quarantine required; tourists must stay at a certified “Safe and Secure” Level 1 hotel for up to 14 days of their stay; tourists can visit sites under the safety of a bio-bubble.
