Travelers to Bhutan are strongly urged to get fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before travel and continue to take personal health safety measures to protect themselves, including practicing social or physical distancing, cleaning hands with soap/hand sanitizer, wearing well-fitted masks, and avoiding crowded areas with poor ventilation.  The CDC strongly recommends that U.S. citizens get flu shots to better protect themselves from a major flu outbreak and reduce the need to access the local health system at this time.  Finally, U.S. citizens should continue to obey measures introduced by Bhutanese officials designed to mitigate COVID-19 outbreaks in their areas.
As of mid-January, several parts of Bhutan have been under lockdown, with limited access to services such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and medical supply stores.  Schools are planning to return from the winter holidays to in person or online instruction, depending on the COVID situation—including vaccination status—in each locale.  For specific information about classes, please check with your educational institution.  Social gathering venues and retail shops are largely open but may have limits on the number of patrons allowed inside.  Social gatherings are generally kept small.  Whenever a virus outbreak occurs, the specific geographic zone with the outbreak will be placed under lockdown.  Each zone contains grocery stores, medical supply shops, and other essential stores that households can access at different times.  During a lockdown, movement within zones is staggered and limited, and movement between zones is strictly prohibited.​

Face masks are almost universally required to be worn in public, especially in urban areas, indoors, and on public transportation.  These regulations are being strictly enforced, and U.S. citizens should be aware that failure to adhere to mask-wearing norms reflects poorly on foreign residents and is likely to result in a fine. Every shop/store provides hand sanitizer and a Druk Trace App code.  All individuals are encouraged to download the Druk Trace App and use it to mark their presence in all public places to assist with accurate contact tracing.

Effective April 1, 2022, pre-entry COVID-19 tests will no longer be required for fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada by land, air, or water. Fully vaccinated individuals will only need an arrival test if they are randomly selected for testing. Fully vaccinated travellers who meet all the criteria no longer need to take a day-eight test upon arrival in Canada. All unvaccinated travelers five years of age or older, will be required to take a molecular COVID-19 test within 72 hours of travel (driving or flying) to Canada and must present a negative test result. The test must be taken outside of Canada. Acceptable types of molecular tests include Polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Nucleic acid test (NAT), Nucleic acid amplification test (NAATs), and Reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP). Rapid antigen tests are not acceptable. Unvaccinated individuals exempt from pre-arrival testing include persons receiving certain medical treatments within 36 hours of entry to Canada, and essential service providers (for land travel, this includes frequent cross- border workers). Unvaccinated travelers with right of entry to Canada will continue to be tested on arrival and day eight and quarantine for 14 days. However, those arriving by air will now be required to stay in a designated quarantine facility or other suitable location while they await the result of their on arrival test. Canada requires all adults traveling in the country by rail or air to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The requirements apply to those traveling within Canada and to those departing from Canada for international destinations. The new rules apply to all persons ages 12 and up. All persons ages 12 and up traveling via the following methods will need to show proof of vaccination before boarding: Air passengers flying on domestic, transborder, or international flights departing from airports in Canada; Rail passengers on VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains; and Marine passengers on non-essential passenger vessels, such as cruise ships, on voyages of 24 hours or more. Passengers must demonstrate that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. With limited exceptions for emergency travel and those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, anyone who is not fully vaccinated by November 30, 2021, will be unable to travel by air or rail within or out of Canada. Proof of vaccination must be uploaded to the ArriveCAN app and vaccinated travelers must also have either digital or paper proof of vaccination in their possession. Partially-vaccinated or non-vaccinated individuals with right of entry into Canada will still be required to follow the current quarantine protocols below. Vaccinated travelers arriving with unvaccinated children will not be required to stay in a quarantine hotel, but children must remain under quarantine for 14 days, during which parents will be able to leave. Upon arrival in Canada, those entering via land border may be randomly selected to take COVID-19 molecular test at designated testing site. Those entering by air may be randomly selected to take COVID-19 molecular test before leaving the airport and non-vaccinated individuals must immediately quarantine in designated hotel for 3 nights to await test results. Whether arriving by land or air, non-vaccinated travelers must quarantine for 14 days post-arrival and take another test at end of quarantine period (some exemptions apply, inclduing those who are “essential to the movement of goods and people.”). Failure to comply is an offense under the Quarantine Act and could lead to imprisonment and/or fines. If flying to Canada as a final destination, all travelers must use ArriveCAN to submit travel and contact information, quarantine plan, and COVID-19 symptom self-assessment.

All individuals traveling to or transiting through Australia, with limited exceptions, to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test at time of check-in. Evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR or other Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) test taken within 3 days before your flight’s scheduled departure, or a medical certificate as proof of a negative Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) taken under medical supervision within 24 hours before your flight’s scheduled departure, must be provided to your airline when you check in. Additionally, masks are mandatory for passengers and crew on all international and domestic flights.

Foreign nationals transiting through Australia to another country do not need to apply for an exemption to travel restrictions if they are booked to depart on a connecting flight within 72 hours. Travelers must follow the quarantine requirements in the state or territory that they arrive in. They may need to stay in hotel accommodation and may be asked to pay for their stay while awaiting their onward flight. If a traveler intends to spend more than 72 hours in Australia waiting for a connecting flight, they are not considered to be transiting Australia and will need to request an exemption from Australia’s travel restrictions.

Chengdu, Sichuan:
Officials in Sichuan Province have further reduced restrictions in Chengdu as of September 19, 2022, amid lower COVID-19 activity. The government has ended a lockdown in most areas, public bus and subway services have resumed, and businesses can resume operations.

However, individuals must hold a negative test result within 72 hours to enter public areas (community courtyards excluded) or use public transport. People must have a negative test result no older than 48 hours to enter nonessential and entertainment businesses and depart the city.

Localized curbs remain in place in areas with COVID-19 activity. Residents in designated high-risk areas must stay at home, while people living in medium-risk locations must limit movement to the immediate area. Authorities will restrict travel to and from the affected communities. Security personnel will enforce checkpoints in these areas to ensure compliance with movement restrictions. Officials typically extend measures until one week after the latest date of newly confirmed community cases. Officials will continue to carry out mass testing in these locations before easing restrictions, individuals that test positive must undergo quarantine.
Lingering business and transport disruptions are possible as operations gradually resume in Chengdu. Other provincial and municipal governments will likely withdraw COVID-19 testing and/or quarantine rules for those with recent travel history to Chengdu.
