HCMC – The HCMC government has given the go-ahead to 14 more hotels with a total of 1,000 guest rooms to serve as paid quarantine centers in preparation for Vietnam's reopening of more international air routes.

The decision was made by HCMC vice chairman Le Thanh Liem, following a proposal by the municipal Department of Health after the department and the HCMC Department of Tourism surveyed and made a selection from a list of hotels registering to function as paid quarantine centers.

The 14 hotels are two- to five-star ones, offering various options to guests and the prices of hotel rooms range from VND1.2 million to VND5 million per night.

Earlier, the city had allowed 10 hotels to operate as quarantine facilities, with over 1,000 rooms, for air crew members, foreign experts, investors and high-skilled workers, local media reported.

In line with HCMC’s regulations, paid quarantine facilities are directly monitored by the city’s steering committee for Covid-19 infection prevention and control, meet the necessary quarantine requirements and ensure adequate facilities.

The hotels will work with the relevant units to unanimously make a list and receive those who register for quarantine so that people of the same nationality or part of the same family will be quarantined in the same area.

Those undergoing quarantine at these hotels must have their body temperature checked twice a day and their samples taken for Covid-19 testing four times during their 14-day quarantine period.

The 14 hotels used for quarantine are:
