Quarantine period for fully vaccinated entrants may be shortened

VGP – A pilot project to shorten quarantine period for fully vaccinated entrants is now under way in the northern province of Quang Ninh.

Under the project, fully vaccinated arrivals will be quarantined for seven days instead of 14 days as currently regulated, according to Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long.

The plan launched by the Ministry of Health could be expanded to cover arrivals who are half-vacinated.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Viet Nam suspended entry of foreign arrivals from March 22, 2020 but this measure is not applicable to diplomats, officials, foreign investors, experts, and skilled workers.

On July 14, the ministry decided to cut the mandatory quarantine period for foreign arrivals and those who come in close contact with COVID-19 patients from 21 days to 14 days.

Viet Nam began to impose 21-day quarantine policy for both foreign arrivals and F1 individuals from May 5, 2021 after several individuals contracted COVID-19 though they had completed 14-day quarantine and tested negative for the virus twice or thrice./.
