Next Tuesday, flights will resume between Vietnam and Cambodia and Laos. The number of flights will not exceed two per week for each route.

Nguyen Thanh Phuong, Deputy Director of Vietnam’s Northern Airport Authority, said, “Airports now have a uniform process for medical examinations of arriving passengers.”

The Transport Ministry had proposed that passengers with allowed entry include Vietnamese citizens, foreigners carrying diplomatic and official passports, experts, business managers, high-skilled workers, investors, and their family members. The government’s permission has added international students and family members of Vietnamese citizens to the list of those allowed entry in the latest loosening of arrival restrictions. The flights are not opened to tourists yet.

Ngo Van Quy, Deputy Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee, said, “There are 2 costs that need to be publicized. One is the hotel cost, which must be clearly specified. The other is the cost of health services, which will be specified by the Health Ministry. We want to create favorable conditions for experts and foreigners to come to Vietnam safely.”
