"Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Sri Lanka," it said in its advice. "Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners."
Travellers should keep in touch with their airline, tour operator and insurer to see what their options are.
They should also "remain vigilant, keep up to date with developments and follow the advice of local security authorities and hotel security staff".
There are an estimated 8,000 British tourists in Sri Lanka.
How you are covered depends on the terms of your policy.
If you are due to travel but cancel because of the Foreign Office advice, some insurers will provide cover for your flight or holiday costs.
If you are already in Sri Lanka, your travel insurance continues to cover you for medical and other risks.
If you want to come home more quickly than planned, insurers ask you to check with your tour operator if you have one to see if they will bring you back.
