Is Vietnam open for visitors?
Yes. Vietnam has now fully opened its borders to international visitors. There are no longer any COVID‑19 entry restrictions for travel to Vietnam. This includes requirements for testing, vaccination, quarantine and entry forms.
What are Vietnam’s vaccine requirements?
It is generally possible to enter Vietnam without being fully vaccinated. The government now does not differentiate between vaccinated and unvaccinated arrivals. All travellers will have to undergo the general COVID-19 entry requirements prevalent in the country.
Travellers are considered fully vaccinated if the final dose of a vaccine against Covid-19 has been administered at least two weeks before travelling and no more than one year prior to the date of entry.
The approved vaccines against COVID-19 in Vietnam are:
- Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)
- Sinopharm (Beijing)

Testing and quarantine procedures
Travellers to Vietnam are NO longer required to present a negative COVID-19 test prior to their entry into Vietnam. However, the authorities have urged travellers that in case they show symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, loss of taste, loss of smell, headache, diarrhoea, breathing difficulty) they must notify the health agency at the border gates.
Vietnam has scrapped its quarantine requirements for all arrivals in the country.
Within 10 days from the date of entry, all passengers must self-monitor their health if they have symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 infection (fever; cough; sore throat; runny nose, stuffy nose; body aches, fatigue, chills; decreased or lost taste; decreased or lost sense of smell; pain, headache; diarrhoea; difficulty breathing; respiratory inflammation) must immediately notify the nearest medical facility for instructions.
