Anyone who chooses to undergo quarantine at a hotel or resort will pay the fees charged by those facilities. People staying at a state-run center must pay 5.2 USD per day for food and services.

All foreigners entering Vietnam are required to buy international health insurance which covers medical examinations and treatment in Vietnam during their stay.

Everyone who enters Vietnam must be tested for COVID-19 and pay the testing fee at the rate of the testing healthcare facility. 

The COVID-19 treatment fee for Vietnamese nationals will be covered by the State, as stated in the Law on Infectious Disease Prevention and Control.
