VGP – The Civil Aviation Authority of Viet Nam (CAAV) said it has informed foreign counterparts that restrictions on all incoming international flights to Viet Nam will be lifted from February 15.

February 13, 2022 5:21 PM GMT+7

The move aims to revive the tourism sector which has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years and it means full resumption of international air routes to pre-pandemic levels.

Passengers however need to comply with the Southeast Asian country's COVID-19 prevention and control regulations.

Under the regulations, foreign arrivals must have a certificate of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test result (by RT-PCR/RT-LAMP technique) issued within 72 hours before entry (except for children under the age of 2) and make health declaration.

When entering Viet Nam, they must install and use the health declaration application (PC-COVID) to make health declaration and monitor the health in accordance with Viet Nam's regulations.

Air passengers shall not be required to take rapid COVID-19 test before boarding and after landing in Viet Nam.

For unvaccinated or partially vaccinated entrants, they shall self-monitor health at the lodging within 7 days from the date of entry and take RT-PCR SARS-CoV-2 tests on the 3rd and 7th days from the date of entry.

If the result is negative, then continue to self-monitor health until the end of the 14th day of entry. In case it is positive, get treatment following the current policy.

In case the persons on entry that are Vietnamese citizens, overseas Vietnamese and their relatives (including their spouses and children) have not been vaccinated or partially vaccinated, they shall be vaccinated free during their quarantine period (if eligible)./.
