Rise in Domestic Tourists Visiting Phu Quoc

The number of domestic tourists to Phu Quoc island city of the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang has been rising. Local authorities said the increase is attributed to the province’s eased COVID-19 control measures.


Visitors to the island of Phu Quoc must meet specific requirements to enter. They must be fully vaccinated for at least 14 days or have recovered from COVID-19 within the past six months. Testing for COVID-19 is not required.

Starting this month, Phu Quoc is welcoming up to eight flights per day from major cities such as Hanoi, HCM City, and Da Nang. Approximately 2,000 passengers are allowed per day. Prior to boarding the plane, passengers only need to make a medical declaration and show vaccination or recovery certificates.

For safety purposes, all vehicles are operated at 50% capacity, and passengers must follow the Ministry of Health’s 5K message.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism and relevant agencies are working with Kien Giang and Phu Quoc authorities on a six-month pilot program to apply the ‘vaccine passport’ and inspect eligible accommodation and recreation establishments. This is part of a roadmap to receive international tourists.
