From March 15, Vietnam reopened borders to foreign tourists and resumed pre-pandemic Visa exemption policy for citizens from 24 countries, including Japan, South Korea and European economies. Foreigners entering Vietnam are only required to present a negative Covid-19 test certificate.

The Ministry of Health has also officially issued the long-awaited COVID-19 protocols for foreign arrivals in Vietnam. The regulations state that visitors with negative COVID tests can travel quarantine-free from day one.

The number of foreign arrivals to Vietnam in the first quarter of this year rose 89.1 percent year-on-year to 91,000 as the country has fully reopened and many international flights have been restored, according to the General Statistics Office.
