Airlines are getting ready to reboot some of their routes

Vietnam Airlines’ flights are evenly distributed throughout the week, limiting cases where there are two flights at one point per day.

The Ministry of Transport has proposed six groups of people to travel on international flights to these countries and territories, as well as entering Vietnam – diplomats, civil servants, overseas Vietnamese, foreign experts, investors, and key project staff.

Vietnamese citizens, after completing immigration procedures, must remain in isolation for 14 days and ensure at least two negative tests.

Foreign experts, skilled workers, investors, and employees of key projects entering Vietnam for more than 14 days, after completing immigration procedures, must be isolated according to COVID-19 protection regulations.

Foreigners entering Vietnam to work for a short time of less than 14 days do not have to be isolated, but must strictly comply with all regulations.

Foreigners will be charged all the costs of their tests to enter Vietnam, while Vietnamese citizens are fully exempt from testing costs.

With the above plan, it is expected that the number of weekly passengers entering the country will be about 5,000.
