Sri Lanka is reopening its borders to tourists after a 10-month hiatus. They are limited to 55 hotels and Covid-19 tests before and after arrival are required.

The sun-soaked island nation, famous for its picturesque beaches, last month welcomed some 1,700 Ukrainian tourists on charter flights in a “pilot project to test our systems”, the government said.

Tourists will be required to purchase insurance, costing US$12, that will cover up to US$50,000 in Covid-19 related medical costs.
