The vaccine passport program requires all tourists to furnish certificates showing they have been fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid and tested negative for the novel coronavirus within 72 hours before departure.

In more than a month after the partial reopening of international tourism following nearly two years of closure over the Covid-19 pandemic, Vietnam has welcomed over 3,500 foreign visitors on special tour packages.
