The Prime Minister’s Office has announced the cancellation of COVID-19 certificates and 48-h results of Rapid Antigen Test (ATK) for travelers entering the Lao PDR.

The office said in its notice on Dec 23 that the cancellation is applicable to Lao citizens, foreigners and stateless people entering the Lao PDR.

Travelers will no longer be required to show proofs of Covid-19 vaccination or Covid-19 test results at any international airports, land border crossings, or ports of entry in Laos.

Laos announced its reopening to visitors in May allowing foreigners to enter the country without taking any prior Covid-19 tests on arrival. More than one million visitors have visited the country in the first nine months of 2022, a rise of 39 per cent year on year.
