Sri Lanka slowly introduces bio bubble travel for foreigners

Published on : Friday, February 19, 2021

Sri Lanka has slowly started permitting international tourists. However, they would have to enter under “bio bubbles” during their first two weeks on arrival.


From January 2021, for leisure travelers, the Southeast Asian nation has exempted the requirements for quarantine, allowing them to leave the hotel room confines, subject to a number of restrictions.


This comprises staying at approved Covid-safe properties, having insurance coverage, testing regularly for Covid-19, and refraining from talking or coming in contact with locals, according to CNBC.


During the initial “bio bubble” period, travelers are not allowed to leave their hotel rooms as they’ll be able to visit approved tourist sites at designated times. Only travel agents can only take tourists to the attractions or via hotel-arranged independent transportation.


In Sri Lanka, authorities have certified 98 Covid-safe hotels, including properties in Colombo and resort town of Bentota, to allow foreign travelers for the first two weeks. All hotel facilities, such as beaches and swimming pools, will be available for use.
