Vietnam plans to reopen to foreign visitors as early as March 15. The country’s Ministry of Tourism has proposed it and also decided to lift almost all travel restrictions from mid-March. This was not previously decided, and it is now reopening three months ahead of expectations.
Vietnam has decided to reopen for international travelers who test negative for COVID 19 before departing to the country. Additionally, visitors must have been vaccinated against the virus within the past six months and 14 days before entering Vietnam.
Additionally, it should be noted that visitors must be quarantined for the first day of travel, in addition to having travel medical coverage up to $10,000. On the other hand, unvaccinated travelers will be allowed to enter the country, but they are required to quarantine for seven days in a hotel. They must also take the RT PCR test on day one and day seven.
Vietnam is cautiously following other Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand and the Philippines, and gradually welcoming visitors. The country is still facing an increase in COVID 19 infections. According to the World Health Organization, the country reported 32,000 new cases of COVID 19 on Wednesday alone.
Vietnam is quite a popular destination for travelers from all over the world, who are looking for a budget destination.
