Vietnamese Ministry of Health announced this week that domestic travelers are no longer required to make health declarations, and international arrivals will face fewer restrictions.
“Vietnam is returning to normalcy, which means a health declaration for domestic travel is unnecessary,” Minister of Health Nguyn Thanh Long stated earlier.
Since April 27, travelers are no longer be required to fill out health declaration forms at border crossings, and from Monday, May 2, international visitors to Vietnam will no longer be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 status or be screened upon arrival because airlines already require travelers to submit a negative test before boarding. After nearly two years of largely closed borders, Vietnam reopened on March 15 with no quarantine mandates. As tourism numbers increase, the policy aims to help alleviate airport congestion.
