Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, Vietnam has stopped all international flights since March 2020. Some visitor groups allowed to enter Vietnam must comply with the quarantine order in 14 days which recently has increased to 21 days as the new outbreaks are more complicated and dangerous. As for Vietnamese entering Singapore, besides a quarantine requirement in 21 days, a reaction test of polymerase chain is compulsory for all travelers upon arrival.
