After an extended period of closure due to COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam started reopening tourism in many provinces and cities to welcome tourists back.
The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a severe blow to economic aspects, especially tourism and travel-related services. In Vietnam, all the tourist attractions and accommodations had to close for a long time. However, the current epidemic situation has been under control with a high rate of vaccine coverage, tourist provinces across the country are step by step reopening to welcome tourists from October. For domestic tourists, most destinations require tourists and tour guides to have tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 within 72 hours or have the vaccination certificate (enough 2 doses). Besides, the provinces such as Kien Giang (Phu Quoc), Khanh Hoa, Quang Nam, Da Nang and Quang Ninh will welcome international tourists according to phase 1 (from Novembre) of tourism reopening plan. In phase 2 (from January 2022), Vietnam will reopen more attractions based on the vaccine strategy and local disease control situation.
