Ho Chi Minh City plans to welcome intn’l visitors next month

The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Tourism has just developed a draft scheme to welcome international tourists with vaccine passports from December 2021, one month earlier than previously expected. ​


According to the scheme, there are three phases in welcoming international visitors to the city.

In the first phase starting from December 2021, or the pilot period, the city will receive foreign tourists under package travel programs designed for selected areas and tourism service establishments.

In the second phase from January 2022, all qualified tour operators will be allowed to serve international tourists.

The third phase will see a full reopening of the tourism market. The beginning of the phase depends on the development of the Covid-19 pandemic and results of the first two phases./.
