Foreigners and overseas Vietnamese, who hold valid permanent or temporary residence cards, visas and visa exemption certificates, can enter Vietnam in accordance with the Law on foreigners’ entry without having to obtain prior approval from ministries, sectors, and local authorities or undergoing pre-clearance procedures.

Those wishing to enter Vietnam for tourism purposes can join tour groups under Vietnam’s pilot inbound tourism program for fully vaccinated arrivals.

Foreign tourists could go to five destinations – Phu Quoc, Nha Trang, Da Nang, Hoi An, and Quang Ninh. Binh Dinh and HCM City will soon reopen as well.
