QUARANTINE (YES / NO): NO


Sri Lanka Tourism Chairperson Kimarli Fernando referred to it as a “new concept” developed by the tourism authority — which allows tourists to travel the country in “bio bubbles,” or roving semi-isolated groups that let travelers sightsee without mixing with the local population. The rules apply for the first two weeks of their stay.

TESTING NORMS IF ANY


Tourists aren’t exactly free to go where they choose. Sri Lanka’s “bio bubbles” allow holidaymakers to move around the island provided they: :

  • Stay in approved hotels
  • Visit approved sites at specific times
  • Travel via independent transportation
  • Undergo frequent Covid-19 testing, and
  • Refrain from intermingling with the local population.
