Key Tips for Vietnam Trip from 15th Mar
Vietnam will fully reopen inbound tourism from March 15 after nearly two years. Most restrictions will be lifted, but there are some requirements to keep in mind.
Vietnam relaxes entry restrictions for tourists before full reopening
The tourism ministry has eased restrictions for tourists arriving in Vietnam under an ongoing vaccine passport trial program before full tourism reopening in mid-March.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism issued new guidelines Thursday in welcoming back foreign arrivals, effective from now until March 15, which allowed foreign tourists and overseas Vietnamese to arrive in Vietnam on regular commercial flights, instead of only charter flights.
After three days of joining a tour package that they have to register beforehand, if the tourists show a negative PCR test result, they are free to visit other localities that have also been approved to welcome back foreign tourists under the vaccine passport program.
Currently, Khanh Hoa, Kien Giang, Quang Nam, Quang Ninh, and Binh Dinh provinces, along with Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang City are the only localities foreign tourists can visit.
In addition, they only need to furnish medical or travel insurance including coverage for Covid-19 treatment worth at least $20,000, instead of $50,000 as previously required.
