Vietnam reopens its borders

February 23, 2022 – Vietnam reopens its borders to all travellers starting March 15.

The country with the strictest COVID-19 restrictions is getting ready to welcome visitors.

Vietnam reopens its borders to all travels

For the past two years, Vietnam’s borders have been closed for international travellers. But this spring, with the easing of restrictions, visitors will finally be able to finally plan their holiday to this beautiful country and discover its beaches, history, cuisine and culture. Vietnam is planning to reopen its borders to tourists from 15 March 2022. The proposal by Vietnam’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism suggests lifting of all major travel restrictions and allowing tourists into the country three months ahead of schedule. In a recent update, the country had ended its limitations on international passenger flights effective 15 February, restoring the number of flights to pre-pandemic levels.

Vietnam’s rules for entry

Requirements for visitors travelling to Vietnam:

  • All incoming travellers will need to present negative reports for COVID-19 by RT-PCR/RT-LAMP method 72 hours before departure or by Rapid Antigen Test 24 hours before arrival (except for children under two years of age). They will also need to get tested within 24 hours of arrival into the country.
  • All visitors need to be fully vaccinated, with the second dose administered within the last six months and no less than 14 days prior to their travel to Vietnam.
  • While unvaccinated travellers will be allowed to enter the country as well, they will need to quarantine for seven days upon arrival.
  • Other visitors will be quarantined for one day upon arrival, and will need to carry travel insurance for up to $10,000 to cover any COVID-19 related costs.

Vietnam has followed some of the most stringent pandemic protocols in the past two years and is now looking to revive its tourism sector by easing restrictions for travellers.
