HCMC – Binh Dinh Province has proposed the prime minister approve its pilot plan to reopen its doors to international tourists as the fourth wave of Covid-19 infections in the south-central province has been brought under control.
Under the pilot plan, the province wants to receive international travelers from Northeast Asian countries, Russia, the United States and some European nations to its tourist attractions on the Phuong Mai Peninsula in Quy Nhon City and Cat Tien Town in Phu Cat District. Tourists can also take bus tours to Quy Nhon City.
To visit Binh Dinh, international visitors need to book package tours offered by international travel firms or enter Vietnam and travel to other parts of the country.
International tourists will be required to produce proof of being fully vaccinated, and a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours before departure. They must also test negative for the coronavirus on the first day of their arrival in the country.
Travel firms serving international tourists must ensure compliance with Covid safety protocols. Their employees must have been fully vaccinated and follow the “three-on-the-spot” regulation while serving tourists, while their lodging facilities must have quarantine areas.
Under the “three-on-the-spot” regulation, employees are required to work, eat and stay after work at the same place.
The central province expects to implement this pilot program from November 1.
