Da Nang to pilot welcoming foreign visitors from November

The central city of Da Nang will pilot its plan to welcome international visitors in November, according to Director of the municipal Department of Tourism Truong Thi Hong Hanh.

Hanh said on October 13 that the city has prepared economic recovery plans, including resuming tourism activities.

In the short term, the municipal Department of Tourism has submitted to the municipal People's Committee two plans to reopen to tourists, Hanh stated.

For the pilot plan to welcome international arrivals, Da Nang will carry out in two phases, starting from this November.

The plan targets commercial visitors and overseas Vietnamese entering Vietnam for business or visiting relatives, with focus on the markets of Russia and the Republic of Korea.

Meanwhile, the plan to welcome domestic visitors will be implemented in three phases. Tourism activities are held for local residents from October 20.

From November 2021, the city will establish a tourism bubble model between Da Nang and some other localities.

The third phase will be implemented as the Government allows resuming all activities in the new normal nationwide./
