U.S. State Department Issues Travel Alert for Bhutan

The U.S. Department of State is warning U.S. citizens against travel to Bhutan at this time due to the damage from the 6.8 magnitude earthquake that struck last week on September 18.

Structural damage from the earthquake includes destroyed roads and buildings, which has created landslide conditions. As of September 23, there have been no reports of U.S. citizen casualties.

Updated information on travel and security can be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4746.
