Vietnam quarantine rules have been reduced to minimum for the full resumption of international tourism.
Effective March 15, 2022, the Vietnamese government has resumed pre-pandemic visa issuance policies. All previous visa restrictions have been lifted.
Arrivals entering Vietnam via air routes will have to present proof of a negative RT-PCR/RT-LAMP SARS-CoV-2 test (except for children under two years old) done within 72 hours prior to departure or a negative rapid antigen test done within 24 hours prior to departure. The test result must be certified by the authorities of the country where the tests are conducted.
People entering via road, sea, and rail will be subject to the same requirements. If arrivals cannot show proof of negative tests, they are required to take a test (either using RT-PCR/RT-LAMP method or rapid antigen tests) in the first 24 hours from the time of arrival. If the results are negative, they may travel outside of their place of accommodation, with public health measures still in place, if the results are positive, they must notify health authorities for further instructions. People without negative COVID-19 results prior to entry are asked to not make rest stops and make contact with other people along the way from the border gate to their place of accommodation.
Children under two years old are not required to take COVID-19 tests, and they can still enter Vietnam and take part in activities outside of the place of accommodation with their parents or relatives even if they have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 or contracted the virus before.
