Crossing the border, it will be enough to present a negative result of a PCR test done within 72 hours or a rapid test carried out 24 hours before arrival.


Vietnam's Ministry of Health has proposed abolishing the use of COVID-19 vaccination passports to enter the country. This was reported by the Vietnam News Agency on Thursday.

According to a letter from the Ministry of Health addressed to ministries, departments and local authorities, it is proposed to cancel the mandatory presentation of vaccine passports and certificates of recovery from COVID-19 when entering Vietnam. It will be enough for those crossing the border of the republic to present a negative result of a PCR test made within 72 hours or an express test carried out 24 hours before arrival. Also, all those entering Vietnam will be required to fill out a health declaration and install on their smartphone and use the local application PC-COVID, designed to monitor the spread of coronavirus and health status throughout their stay in the country.

In turn, the advisory board Tourism Development Council proposed to local authorities to cancel mandatory testing for coronavirus for foreigners arriving in the country. As noted in the appeal of the council, the rejection of restrictive measures, one of which is mandatory testing for COVID-19 when entering the country, will create an incentive for the speedy restoration of foreign tourist flow in light of the full opening of Vietnam's borders for foreigners after the pandemic, scheduled for March 15.

According to the National Coordinating Committee for the Prevention and Control of the Spread of COVID-19, the total number of coronavirus infections in Vietnam has exceeded five million since the beginning of the pandemic. Now the epidemiological situation in Vietnam is basically under control. The country, in accordance with the strategy approved by the government, has moved to the stage of safe, flexible adaptation and effective containment of COVID-19.
