Bhutan opens tourism amidst COVID under strict guidelines and protocols

On August 5, 2021, the government of Bhutan resumed issuing tourist visas, but with a mandatory 21-day quarantine. Tourists must bear all charges for quarantine facilities (hotel and food) as well as the Sustainable Development Fee (SDF). The minimum daily tariff will only be levied after the completion of quarantine. Individuals will undergo another RT-PCR test upon completing quarantine.

Entry will only be facilitated for those coming by air. Travelers must provide a COVID-19 negative certificate issued by a laboratory certified to carry out RT-PCR test, not earlier than 72 hours before the start of the journey from the country of origin. The government has also made it mandatory to have insurance coverage. 

If you are traveling to Bhutan, make sure you are vaccinated before you travel. The current situation in Bhutan is unknown but even vaccinated travelers run the risk of getting and spreading COVID-19 variants. Travelers should follow all recommendations and requirements for Bhutan, including wearing masks and staying 6 feet away from others.
