Gov’t okays pilot roadmap for opening borders to foreign tourists

VGP – The Government has agreed with a pilot roadmap to reopen borders to foreign tourists from November, nearly 20 months after the country suspended entry of foreign tourists due to COVID-19.

November 03, 2021 4:15 PM GMT+7

Under the three-stage roadmap proposed by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, in the first stage, foreign tourists are welcomed to the following four destinations, namely Phu Quoc island of the southern Kien Giang province, Khanh Hoa, Quang Nam, Da Nang, and Quang Ninh.

More destinations will be chosen for the pilot policy from January next year.

No mandatory quarantine will be required for foreign tourists who have received two COVID-19 vaccine shots or recovered from the disease within the past 12 months before arriving in Viet Nam.

In addition, they must show proof of a negative RT-PCR or RT-LAMP test result taken within 72 hours before departure.

All foreign tourists are required to have a COVID-19 travel insurance coverage with a minimum level of US$50,000 each and buy all-in tours of local travel companies./.
