HCMC – Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh has approved in principle the resumption of international regular commercial flights from/to countries and territories deemed safe from Covid-19 and practicing appropriate anti-pandemic measures.
The deputy prime minister asked the Ministry of Transport to submit a plan on the resumption to the Government before November 5.
The Government Office issued a document announcing Deputy PM Minh’s directions on applying the Covid-19 vaccine passports and other measures to facilitate the entry of foreign experts into Vietnam to serve the country’s socioeconomic development. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs was also assigned to work with partners to accelerate the mutual recognition of vaccine passports.
In addition, the Ministry of Health was asked to issue Vietnam’s vaccine passport form before November 5.
Last week, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang said Vietnam had provisionally recognized Covid-19 vaccination record cards, also known as vaccine passports, issued by 72 countries and territories and is discussing the issue with nearly 80 others.
