Inbound commercial flights to Vietnam remain suspended until further notice, except those repatriating Vietnamese citizens back home.
Right now, the only passengers being accepted into Vietnam are those on diplomatic or official duty, those attending important foreign affairs events, experts, business managers, highly-skilled workers, and special cases, and these will only gain admission with the approval of the national steering committee on prevention and control of COVID-19.
Flights departing Vietnam are allowed to carry passengers and cargo.
All arriving passengers are subject to a compulsory quarantine of 14 days at their own cost.
Visitors staying less than 14 days may not have to quarantine but must comply with existing regulations on quarantine and epidemic prevention measures.
Foreigners that entered the country on tourist visas since March 1 last year have been granted free temporary residence until January 31 but must fill out the online medical declaration form.
