Entry requirements for international tourists starting March 15

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism issued new guidelines in welcoming back foreign arrivals, which allowed foreign tourists and overseas Vietnamese to arrive in Vietnam on regular commercial flights, instead of only charter flights.


Proof of vaccination

All visitors age 12 and older to Vietnam must either show proof of full vaccination or recent recovery from COVID-19 to enter the country.

To be considered fully vaccinated, one’s final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine must be administered within 14 days and six months of departure, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism. Alternatively, travelers may present documents certifying recovery from COVID-19 within the previous six months.


Testing requirements with 1-day quarantine

Travelers over age 2 must show results of a negative COVID-19 test, specifically a PCR test taken within 72 hours or a rapid test taken within 24 hours. In addition to the pre-departure test, you must take a second rapid test within 24 hours of entry and quarantine until receipt of negative results.


Travel insurance

Additionally, visitors must buy and show proof of medical or travel insurance within a minimum liability of $10,000 to cover any COVID-19-related costs.


Visa required

Ministries also proposed the government resumes the unilateral visa exemption policy for 13 countries and bilateral for 88 countries and territories as prior to the pandemic.

Before the pandemic, Vietnam unilaterally exempted visa for 13 countries Russia, Japan, South Korea, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, the U.K., France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Belarus for a maxium of 15 days.
