Fully vaccinated people and those who have recovered from Covid-19 will only need to self-isolate for three days instead of enter centralized quarantine for seven days, the health ministry announced Thursday.

Under guidelines that the ministry has issued regarding Covid-19 prevention rules starting January 1, 2022, all arrivals must have tested negative for the novel coronavirus within the previous 72 hours and installed the PC-Covid app for health monitoring.

The PCR test requirement will not apply to children below two.

Those who have been fully vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19 will only need to self-monitor their health for three days, either at home, hotels or other facilities.

They will be tested on the third day. If results are negative, they will be required to monitor their health for the next 11 days, free to move about, but required to avoid large gatherings or crowded places.

Fully vaccinated people and recovered cases must have relevant certificates to prove their status.

Arrivals who are not fully vaccinated will be quarantined at home or other facilities for seven days, then be tested on the 3rd and 7th days.

Those under 18, above 65, pregnant women and those with underlying conditions can be quarantined with caretakers. However, the caretakers must be fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19.

Foreign entrants will have to pay for their own tests, quarantine and Covid-19 treatment. They are recommended to take their own rapid tests on the first day of arrival.

Vietnam has agreed to resume international flights for nine destinations that have managed high vaccination rates and good pandemic control on January 1.

They are San Francisco or Los Angeles (the U.S.), Singapore, Bangkok (Thailand), Phnom Penh (Cambodia), Vientiane (Laos), Beijing/Guangzhou (China), Tokyo (Japan), Seoul (South Korea), and Taipei (Taiwan).

Vietnam grounded international flights in March last year, for a long time allowing in only its nationals, foreign experts, investors, and highly-skilled workers coming by special flights.
