Vietnam is planning to reopen for foreign visitors as early as March 15. The country’s tourism ministry has proposed this, and also decided to lift almost all of the travel restrictions from mid March. This is not what was decided upon previously, and it is now reopening three months before expectation.
Vietnam decided to reopen for those international travellers who test negative for COVID 19 before their departure to the country. Moreover, visitors should have been vaccinated against the virus in the last six months, and 14 days before entering into Vietnam.
Also, it must be noted that visitors have to be quarantined for the first day of the trip, besides carrying travel medical coverage for up to $ 10000. On the other hand, unvaccinated travellers will be permitted to enter the country, but they are required to quarantine for seven days in a hotel. They must also take RT PCR test on the first day, and the seventh day.
Vietnam is cautiously following other southeast Asian countries such as Thailand and Philippines, and gradually welcoming back visitors. The country is still dealing with a rise in COVID 19 infections. According to the World Health Organization, the country reported 32000 new cases of COVID 19 cases on Wednesday alone.
Vietnam is quite a popular destination for travellers from across the world, who are looking for a budget friendly destination.
