Bhutan Travel Reopening Updates: December 10th, 2021
Covid-19 Current Conditions: The magical kingdom of Bhutan has been incredibly successful in both containing the virus and vaccinating its adult population. Almost 100% of its eligible population is now fully vaccinated with credible internationally recognized vaccines, as are most of the 12-year-old plus children near the border Bhutan shares with India. Complete faith in the king and the government has resulted in this great vaccination achievement and has had 2648 total reported cases since the beginning of the pandemic, with only three deaths.
When will Bhutan reopen for tourism from other countries?
There is no official word from the magical kingdom as to when this will change. Easy Tours is not offering travel to Bhutan until we have more details.
What requirements will there be for incoming tourists?
It is Easy Tours’ opinion that, upon reopening, general tourism in Bhutan will require proof of credible vaccine inoculations and some level of testing.
Easy Tours Commitment to Guests:
1. Vaccinated Service Providers: All our colleagues (Tour Directors, Guides, Chauffeurs) and the luxury hotel staff who you will encounter are already completely vaccinated with credible and highly rated vaccines. They will always wear masks around you and ample disinfectant will be used in your vehicle on a daily basis. Hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes will be available throughout your day as you explore, and at your hotels.
2. Hotels & Dining: We only offer the top luxury hotels and resorts, all of whom have established, and proven, a very strong commitment to the wellbeing of guests and staff. This currently includes daily screening of all staff, screening of incoming guests, very vigorous ongoing sanitizing procedures and practices, availability of on-call physicians, and a lot more.
3. Guides: You will be assigned one Accompanying Tour Director (Expert Licensed Guide) who will greet you when you arrive, and then facilitate all your activities, including serving as your expert guide, throughout your time with us. Our previous guests know that Easy Tours has the best Tour Director’s, and these colleagues will be screened before starting their services with you.
4. Vehicles and chauffeurs: Your vehicle will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized each morning, and hand sanitizer will be available to you in your vehicle at all times. You will have the same chauffeur and vehicle throughout your tour, unless your tour includes multiple regions/countries that require a flight.
