According to a proposal by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism on a pilot programme for foreign tourists beginning in November, those visiting Vietnam for seven days will be tested as soon as they arrive. Visitors to Phu Quoc, Khanh Hoa, Quang Nam, Da Nang and Quang Ninh will also need to book a combo of air tickets, Covid-19 testing, hotel and registered destinations. If negative, they could avoid a quarantine period.
People on tours lasting more than seven days will be tested again on the 7th day of their trip. Under the pilot programme, they could spend a maximum of 90 days in Vietnam. Under the ministry’s proposal, foreigners and overseas Vietnamese must have a vaccination certificate or Covid-19 recovery certificate recognised by Vietnam’s authorities.
They must have received a second dose of a Covid-19 vaccine at least 14 days and no longer than 12 months before arrival. Covid-19 recovery certificates within 12 months before entry are accepted. Travellers are also required to show proof of a negative PCR/LAMP test conducted within 72 hours prior to departure. They must have travel insurance that covers Covid-19 with a minimum liability of 50,000 USD and must purchase a tour package from a travel agency.
