Hanoi –
Vietnam is planning to
reopen certain tourist destinations from November this year, according to a plan mapped out by the Ministry of
Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Under the draft plan that the Vietnam National
Administration of Tourism (VNAT) announced at a recent meeting, domestic tourism
would be resumed from November with travelers from localities where the
COVID-19 pandemic is under control allowed to travel under strict pandemic
preventive rules regarding vaccination, RT-PCR testing, “5K message,” health
declaration, and health app use. 

As for foreign visitors, Phu Quoc will re-open on a
pilot basis from November this year to March 2022, followed by other
destinations meeting certain requirements like Ha Long (Quang Ninh), Hoi An
(Quang Nam), Nha Trang (Khanh Hoa) and Da Lat (Lam Dong) from December 2021 to
June 2022.

On October 7, the central province of Thanh Hoa
proposed to the ministry that it hopes to receive foreign tourists at the end
of this year.

Meanwhile, northern cities and provinces like Hanoi,
Hai Phong, Quang Ninh and Ha Giang have built various tourism products in
preparation of the return of domestic visitors.

Localities that want to reopen tourism asked the
VNAT to work with concerned agencies, including the Ministries of Health,
Transport, Public Security and Foreign Affairs, to design consistent
regulations for tourism when reopening./.
