Khanh Hoa welcomes first int’l tourists after pandemic hiatus

The central coastal province of Khanh Hoa, home to famous beach towns Nha Trang and Cam Ranh, on November 25 welcomed the first international tourists with vaccine passports after a long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


The visitors who are Americans and Canadians of Vietnamese origin took a flight of Bamboo Airways from Seoul, the Republic of Korea.

After their arrival, the tourists were transported to a lodging facility in Nha Trang and tested for the coronavirus.

Khanh Hoa is one of the five localities, together with Kien Giang, Quang Ninh, Quang Nam, and Da Nang, selected to roll out the pilot “vaccine passport” programme.

The programme is divided into three phases, starting from this November./.
