COVID 19: Bhutan travel updates

Bhutan amidst COVID

Guidelines and Protocol

Bhutan resumed issuing tourist visas on August 5, 2021, with a mandatory 21-day quarantine for unvaccinated visitors, and a 10-day quarantine for fully vaccinated visitors. Visitors are required to cover all costs related to quarantine (hotels and meals), medical bills, RT-PCR, antibody testing, and the Sustainable Development Fee (SDF, which is USD 65 per night per person). The minimum daily tariff will not be charged until after the quarantine period has ended.

Only air travelers will be allowed entry into Bhutan. COVID-19 negative certificates must be provided by a laboratory certified to perform RT-PCR tests, not earlier than 72 hours before departure from the country of origin. Travelers must also carry medical insurance.

Bhutan has completed the nationwide COVID-19 vaccination campaign with both doses, with 95% of the total eligible population now vaccinated. We look forward to the further advancement of relaxation and travel incentives in the future.
