Laos has extended its Covid-19 prevention measures until 31 October, however, some measures, including a ban on charter flights, will be eased.

The National Task Force Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control revealed in a statement for the press yesterday that the Lao government had agreed in principle to resume charter flights with countries that are not experiencing an outbreak.

The move comes as the government hopes to mitigate the economic impact of Covid-19, particularly in regard to the tourism industry, which has been hit hardest.

According to a notice issued by the Prime Minister’s Office, Laos will continue the suspension of issuance of tourist visas for foreign visitors, however, charter flights will be available this month.

In addition, returning residents who test negative will be allowed to complete their quarantine in their home or at their place of employment instead of the previous requirement for a 14-day quarantine in a designated quarantine center or hotel.
