HCMC – Khanh Hoa Province will pilot a plan to open its doors to international tourists with a Covid vaccine passport in early November.
The pilot program will be carried out in two phases until the end of March 2022.
In the first phase from November until the end of the year, the province will serve international visitors arriving on board charter flights at resorts in the Northern Cam Ranh Peninsula Tourist Area.
If the first phase pays off, the second phase of the pilot plan will be conducted in the next three months to March 31, 2022. During this phase, international visitors might travel to more tourist areas on several islands in Nha Trang City such as the Vinpearl Land Nha Trang on Tre Island and Merperle Resort on Tam Island.
At a meeting with the relevant departments and agencies on September 25, Le Huu Hoang, vice chairman of Khanh Hoa Province, assigned the provincial Department of Tourism to flesh out a draft plan to welcome tourists and submit it to the provincial government for approval prior to September 30.
The department was told to soon send the draft plan to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism for consideration, and draw up safety criteria for tourism in the new normal stage and submit them to the provincial government before September 30.
In addition, the province is preparing to welcome domestic visitors in October.
