Vietnam to welcome more vaccinated travellers from Dec 21

  • Vietnam is planning from Dec 21 to reopen key tourist destinations to vaccinated visitors from countries deemed a low Covid-19 risk, the government said on 6 Oct 21, ahead of a full resumption targeted for Jun 22. The country’s tourism sector, which accounts for around 10% of GDP, has been severely battered by the pandemic.
  • Vietnam in Sep 21 announced it would reopen the resort island Phu Quoc for vaccinated travellers from Nov 21.
  • It will from Dec 21 also allow tourists from approved countries to visit Unesco world heritage site Halong Bay and Hoi An, the highlands town of Dalat and beach destination Nha Trang.
  • The move follows similar steps taken by neighbouring Thailand, which will in Nov 21 expand locations in its pilot scheme to allow vaccinated visitors.
