Posted By : Threeland Travel / Travel Alert ( Top News )

Are you eager for a trip to Vietnam with a vaccine passport without quarantine? Currently, Vietnam has taken its security measures and prepared new reassurances necessary to open its doors to international travelers with valid vaccination certificates (vaccine passports). 

On June 11, the Vietnamese government directed the pilot of the use of vaccine passports with international visitors to several tourist centers that can control the epidemic, such as Phu Quoc island in Kien Giang. To do this, tourism experts believe that Phu Quoc people must be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity. 

Phu Quoc prepares to welcome international visitors with vaccine passports that want to travel to Vietnam this year.

Thus, it is required that 90% of visitors on the island, including foreigners and migrant workers, must be vaccinated against Covid-19. International tourists who want to visit the island must have a vaccination certificate (or vaccine passport) and a negative PCR test result. When piloting, temporarily apply soft isolation measures between Phu Quoc and the mainland.

If the pilot Phu Quoc welcomes international visitors with vaccine passports in Vietnam is successful and safe, it will expand to other tourist destinations.

According to Mr. Nguyen Quy Phuong - Director of the Travel Department, Phu Quoc has about 178,000 people, if vaccinated, it will create herd immunity. This is a very good model for Vietnam to pilot open to international visitors with vaccine passports. Therefore, the leader of Kien Giang province said that he would propose to the Government to vaccinate all Phu Quoc residents to open the door to international visitors. 

Mr. Lam Minh Thanh, Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee expects that by September or early October, Phu Quoc island will welcome the first foreign tourists. 

According to Mr. Nguyen Tien Dat, Director of AZA Travel Company, first of all, the vaccine passport should be tested in the domestic market. If it is successful, it will deploy the vaccine passport to welcome international visitors, selectively from relatively safe markets. 

The trial tour can be a golf tour or a resort tour. From there, Vietnam will have the opportunity to welcome international visitors, recover tourism faster or at least not lag behind countries in the region such as Thailand and Japan.

The opening to welcome international tourists is a critical issue, in which the highest priority should be given to ensuring safety in epidemic prevention and control. It is necessary to pilot step by step on the passenger market, flight form, selection of suitable destinations, products, and service enterprises that are capable and meet the requirements of epidemic prevention and control. 

An Thoi Island

In particular, Phu Quoc island district - Kien Giang province is considered a tourist center that can control the disease well in Vietnam, so it is chosen as the first place to pilot vaccine passports.

Some Southeast Asian countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia have also implemented the application of vaccine number certification. For example, from May 1, 2021, Singapore has accepted the IATA Travel Pass of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for international arrivals.
