The provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism has submitted to the administration a draft plan for a three-phase vaccine passport program to allow in fully vaccinated foreign tourists.
In the first phase from November, tourists will be allowed to visit Hoi An town and My Son Sanctuary, a complex of abandoned and partly ruined Hindu temples constructed between the 4th and 14th centuries by the Champa Kingdom.
Visitors need to prove they were fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to arrival or recovered from COVID. Visitors under 18 should produce a negative COVID test certificate. They are required to book a package tour with a designated travel agency and have medical and travel insurance.
In the second phase from January 2022 provincial authorities will expand the list of resorts and tourist destinations.
Subsequently, Quang Nam will fully reopen to foreign tourists.
