The move was made to facilitate the entry of entrants who are fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 into Vietnam in accordance with the Government’s Resolution No. 128/NQ-CP adopting provisional guidelines on safe adaptation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has also put forward a roadmap for resumption of international air routes, suggesting the roadmap be implemented in the fourth quarter this year, reported the Vietnam Government portal.

Accordingly, eligible entrants shall only undergo seven-day quarantine in line with the Ministry of Health’s quarantine protocol.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has also discussed with nearly 80 partners about mutual recognition of vaccination certificates or vaccine passports, Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang told reporters at a press conference on Thursday.
