Vietnam is planning to reopen certain tourist destinations from November this year, towards a full resumption in June 2022, according to a plan mapped out by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Under the draft plan that the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) announced at a recent meeting, domestic tourism would be resumed from November with travelers from localities where the COVID-19 pandemic is under control allowed to travel under strict pandemic preventive rules regarding vaccination, RT-PCR testing, “5K message,” health declaration, and health app use.

As for foreign visitors, Phu Quoc will re-open on a pilot basis from November this year to March 2022, followed by other destinations meeting certain requirements like Ha Long (Quang Ninh), Hoi An (Quang Nam), Nha Trang (Khanh Hoa) and Da Lat (Lam Dong) from December 2021 to June 2022.

The full opening to international visitors could be in June 2022.

On October 7, the central province of Thanh Hoa proposed to the ministry that it hopes to receive foreign tourists at the end of this year.

Meanwhile, northern cities and provinces like Hanoi, Hai Phong, Quang Ninh and Ha Giang have built various tourism products in preparation of the return of domestic visitors.

Localities that want to reopen tourism asked the VNAT to work with concerned agencies, including the Ministries of Health, Transport, Public Security and Foreign Affairs, to design consistent regulations for tourism when reopening./.
