If you travel to Laos despite our current advice, expect additional health screening at entry points and possible quarantine at a local public hospital. Note our ability to provide consular assistance will be limited. The standard of medical care is extremely limited. If you’re travelling from a COVID-19 affected country you’ll have to self-quarantine for 14 days on arrival. Due to reduced flights, your departure options maybe be limited.
