Viet Nam rejects inaccurate information about entry policy

VGP – The information about Viet Nam officially banning entry for foreign nationals and repatriated Vietnamese from July 28 to the end of 2021 is FALSE and INACCURATE. 

Viet Nam has temporarily suspended the entry of foreigners since March 22, 2020, until further notice to limit the spread of COVID-19 in line with the Notice No. 118/TB-VPCP dated March 21, 2020 on conclusion of the Prime Minister following the Government's meeting on COVID-19 response. 

The above measure, however, shall not be applicable to diplomats, officials, foreign investors, experts, and skilled workers.

For those entering Viet Nam for diplomatic and official purposes, for participation in major diplomatic events, or being experts, business managers, highly skilled workers, the Ministry of Public Security and Ministry of National Defense shall coordinate with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Health, and other relevant agencies to issue visa if necessary.

Upon arrival, the aforesaid entrants shall be subject to mandatory medical declaration and other effective regulations at designated areas at ports of entry and shall have to isolate themselves at places of residence as currently regulated.

For overseas Vietnamese wishing to return home, they should register with Viet Nam’s diplomatic missions abroad which would coordinate with the Ministry of Transport to arrange commercial flights. They shall have to strictly comply with current regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control./.
