Concerning the decision to temporarily suspend the unilateral exemption of visa for the Korean citizens, Hang said the Northeast Asian country on February 23 raised its alert to the highest level in face of the complicated development of the COVID-19 epidemic in its Daegu city and Gyeongsangbuk province, and in that context, the Vietnamese Government has decided on the move, effective from 0:00 am on February 29.
