Laos has extended its Covid-19 prevention measures until 31 December, however, some measures, including a ban on bars and karaoke venues, will be eased.
According to a notice issued by the Prime Minister’s Office, authorities have agreed in principle to allow entertainment venues, such as karaoke bars and nightclubs, to reopen.
The move comes as the government hopes to mitigate the economic impact of Covid-19, particularly in regard to business operations.
The Lao government will also discuss policy on travel between Laos and Vietnam, and Laos and Japan, as well as other ASEAN countries, according to the notice.
Laos will continue the suspension on issuance of tourist visas for foreign visitors, however, people who have an urgent need for travel will be authorized, according to the notice.
The closure of traditional and customary border checkpoints will remain in place, except for those authorized by the government for the transport of goods. International borders will remain closed to all regular travelers except Lao citizens or foreigners with authorization from the Taskforce.
The updated Covid-19 prevention measures will remain in place until 31 December.
