Vietnam Vaccinated Tourism

As of March 15th, 2022 and after almost exactly two years of closed borders, Vietnam has finally opened its international borders. This is wonderful news for the entire country and everyone involved in the tourism industry. Khiri now has a solid set of entry requirements, which in fact make Vietnam one of the easiest countries in the region to visit.

As of this morning, March 16th, visas are now possible to apply for and we hope this sees further interest in travel possibilities in the coming months.

Entry Requirements:

  • The international borders to Vietnam via air, sea, and land were opened on March 15th, 2022.
  • Vietnam Visa exemption for up to 15 days has resumed for citizens from: Germany, France, Italy, Spain, UK & Ireland, Russia, Japan, Korea, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Belarus. Valid for 3 years from March 15, 2022, until March 14, 2025.
  • Tourists from other countries can proceed through the same visa process that was in place pre-covid.
  • Foreign tourists entering Vietnam are not required to quarantine from March 15, 2022.
  • To be allowed entry, travelers must show negative test results for COVID-19 by RT-PCR obtained within the previous 72 hours before arriving in Vietnam, or negative rapid antigen test results obtained within 24 hours before entering the country (except for children under 2-year- old). The authorized authority of the country performing the test must certify the test results.
  • Those who are unable to test before departing their home country must be tested within 24 hours of entering Vietnam and can leave their accommodation after showing a negative result.
  • Tourists must continue monitoring their health for 10 days as per health ministry protocol.
  • All visitors must install the PC-COVID app, submit a health declaration on arrival, and self-monitor for the first 10 days from their entry date.

To be clear:

  • No Need for vaccine certificates
  • No vaccine status required
  • No testing after arrival (if test results are provided pre-arrival)
  • No isolation on arrival
  • No insurance required

There are still some aspects that we are requesting clarification on, but at this point, we are all very optimistic!
