    HIGH MEDICAL RISK for Bhutan
    LOW TRAVEL RISK for Bhutan

Risk Summary

Bhutan presents a low risk security environment, and normal travel is possible. However, road safety and driving conditions are poor, and the use of a local driver is recommended when undertaking overland journeys. Isolated and mountainous terrain requires that vehicles are in good condition and adequately equipped for varying road and weather conditions.

Crime levels are extremely low, though banditry is a rising concern along the porous southern border with India. There is also an increased risk of petty crime in the border towns.

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please check our travel security alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
