Specifically, they must bring their identity cards or passports and certificates of full vaccination against COVID-19 with the second shot receiving at least 14 days prior to the game.

If the vaccination information has not been integrated on the ID card, the spectators must bring a certificate of vaccination and present a negative test which is taken within 72 hours.

In addition, fans need to arrive at My Dinh Stadium about two hours before the start of the match to complete procedures related to pandemic prevention and control. They are also required to install the VNEID app or get their own accounts on website: to make inland travel declaration, including testing information.

Previously, the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) on November 5 reached an agreement with Medlatec General Hospital on conducting rapid tests for SARS-CoV-2 for spectators at a cost of 100,000 VND per test per person. The time it takes for results to return will be shortened so that fans can get the certificates as soon as possible.

The match between Vietnam and Japan will take place at 7pm on November 11 at My Dinh National Stadium. Due to the complicated development of the COVID-19 pandemic, the stadium is allowed to accommodate 12,000 spectators or about 30 percent of its capacity./.
