August 23, 2022 - 1024 views

From 15th May 2022, Vietnam allows fully vaccinated worldwide travellers to enter without testing Covid -19 and quarantine. 

Vietnam’s solution to welcome international tourists post Covid-19 

On 15th March 2022, Vietnam allows all tourists to come to Vietnam without a tour register. The advantage of this solution is its policy, Vietnam is open to foreigners from all countries and territories who have a negative quick test result in no more than 24 hours or RT- PCR Covid 19 test result in no more than 72 hours before arrival. Especially, Vietnam unilaterally offers visa exemptions for 13 countries and e-visa is available to residents of 80 countries. 

Fortunately, at the present, from 15th May 2022, Vietnam totally opens borders when all Covid-19 testing requirements are removed. Tourists just only need the certificate for a fully vaccinated and install PC-Covid 19 for the government to control the epidemic situation. 

NOTE: Open tourism policy will change day by day
