15 Countries And Territories In The International Flight Resumption Proposal
On November 8, the ministry of transport submitted a proposal to the Prime Minister regarding the reopening of international flights to 15 countries and territories in 3 periods.
Accordingly, 15 places included in the proposal are China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the UK, and Australia, France, Germany, and Russia.
The plan is divided into 3 stages in which each applies distinctive requirements for travelers. The first stage in the first quarter of 2022 will not require passenger lists from authorized agencies, entry-exit requirements, and health checks.
In the second stage in the second quarter of 2022, no more centralized quarantines are required for foreigners who have vaccine passports on regular flights.
In the last stage, regular international flights will be broadened based on the current situation of pandemics in Vietnam and around the world.
The ministry stresses the vital role of identifying the specific time to conduct 3 stages and evaluating the pilot international flights to Vietnam destinations such as Phu Quoc, Nha Trang, Quang Ninh, Da Nang, and Quang Nam.

The international flight resumption not only helps reduce the pressure on domestic airlines but also promotes tourism activities in the country and recovers the national economy.
The reputable U.K magazine Condé Nast Traveler has recently voted Vietnam among the top 30 ideal destinations to travel in October.
According to the draft plan of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Vietnam will resume some destinations from November and expect to fully reopen tourism for international tourists from June 2022.
