According to the latest proposal submitted to PM. Pham Minh Chinh by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Vietnam is set to resume international travels and welcome fully vaccinated tourists no later than the end of April, ideally on 31st March of this year. The Prime Minister also urges the plan yet with careful preparations.
As an effort to seize the opportunity of full tourism resumption, Vietnam also boosts the shot vaccination campaign and considers visa exemption for 24 countries including ASEAN Co-members. Earlier, the very first Russian tourists were welcomed at Cam Ranh International Airport, Khanh Hoa Province on 26th December 2021.
Con Dao and Phu Quoc Islands off the southern coast of Vietnam were voted in the list of 10 most stunning islands in Southeast Asia by voters of the US magazine Travel + Leisure.
Six Senses Con Dao Resort in southern Vietnam has recently been included in the list of 15 best resorts in Asia by readers of the US magazine Travel + Leisure.
As Vietnam has already lifted Covid-19 prevention measures, the country enjoys a tourism boost and the restart of many international flights from different regions worldwide.
