Holidays are coming, vaccines are coming, and traveling will be coming back soon! People are excited about the future. With vaccines being shipped across the globe, we have hope that people will be able to travel in 2021.

In Asia, the fundamentals are strong in supporting a return to travel, both within the region and from international travelers. Asian countries have maintained closed borders over the past six months; in this way the COVID infection numbers have been kept low and death rates even lower. For example, according to the Laotian government there were no new Covid cases reported yesterday. And, on Sunday a total of 1,871 people entered Laos through international border checkpoints. Each person had his or her temperature taken and no one registered a fever.

When travel resumes, Asia will provide safe destinations of choice for clients and vaccinated travelers.
