The Country with lots of amazing touristic landscapes of the Ascending Dragon, with hosts of Buddhist pagodas and some great Pho, is perfect for anyone looking for a pocket-friendly destination. Vietnamese government announced that tourism would be resuming soon. Vietnam is planning to reopen for foreign visitors as early as March 15. The country’s tourism ministry has proposed this, and also decided to lift almost all of the travel restrictions from mid March.
All visitors to Vietnam after March 15, 2022, will be required to take a pre-departure test and to self-quarantine for one day and proof of vaccination will also be required. This plan has yet to receive final approval from the Prime Minister.
The government has said that it will design a new visa policy for foreign tourists as soon as possible. Before the coronavirus outbreak, the country had waived visa requirements for tourists from Australia and other countries.
Since November, Vietnam has allowed international tourists to visit a limited number of places as part of a trial programme and its policy to relax restrictions.
After seeing a severe decline in its economy because of nationwide lockdowns and other limitations, the government reversed its stance on strict anti-virus measures in October.
And the good news is that Vietnam, following in the footsteps of other southeast Asian countries like Thailand and the Philippines, has decided to gradually reopen its doors to foreign travellers as soon as March 15.
The country’s tourism ministry has decided to abolish practically all travel restrictions starting mid-March. Vietnam borders will be open to all overseas visitors who have tested negative for COVID 19 before entering the country.
Travellers are expected to be vaccinated against the virus between the last six months and 14 days of their arrival in Vietnam. It’s also to be noted that tourists must quarantine on the first day of their vacation and have travel medical insurance worth up to $10,000.
On the other hand, unvaccinated travellers will be allowed to enter the nation but will be compelled to quarantine for seven days in a hotel. They must also take an RT PCR test on the first and seventh days.
