Vietnam Reopening

Summary of Current Situation:

Following an announcement on 16 March, 2022, Vietnam has fully reopened for tourism. Perhaps even bigger news: there is no testing on arrival. The only requirements at the moment are a PCR test 72 hours or a rapid test 24 hours before departure. As soon as it is established that guests are COVID negative, they are free to explore Vietnam.

In the official news release, there is no mention of a need to show proof of COVID vaccination. What is clear is that fully vaccinated travellers will be eligible for entry. Whether unvaccinated travellers are eligible for entry will be clarified at a later date.

Furthermore, Vietnam has announced the resumption of visa-free entry for up to 15 days for citizens of 13 countries and e-visas for citizens of 80 countries (below).

  • Anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID infection will be asked to take a rapid antigen test at the airport before heading to their hotel.

During Stay:

  • Monitor health for 10 days as per health ministry protocol
  • If guests tests positive for COVID during their stay, they can self-isolate unless there are serious symptoms requiring medical services. In these cases, either we or authorities will assist in transportation to a local hospital depending on the situation and severity.

Still Unclear:

  • Are unvaccinated travellers able to enter Vietnam?
    • We don’t know yet, although we recommend that all travellers be fully vaccinated.
  • Will guests be required to show proof of COVID insurance? We don’t know yet, but we always recommend travel insurance covering COVID treatment and other incidents.
  • What will the procedures be for the rapid antigen test on arrival for those who were not tested before departure?
