The Vietnam Civil Aviation Authority (CAAV) said in a recent proposal to the Ministry of Transport that scheduled flights to and from certain safe countries are expected to resume in late July, without specifically mentioning which country. A country is defined as safe if it does not record community transmission for 30 consecutive days.

Passengers must have stayed in this country for at least 30 days and must provide a certificate attesting that they have tested negative for the virus within three days before the flight. Passengers in transit are not allowed.

Upon arrival in Vietnam, passengers will have to undergo a rapid test paid for by the airline. They will then be quarantined for 14 days in a chargeable establishment designated by the authorities.

Businessmen, experts, students and tourists should be eligible for this “travel bubble” program, proposed the CAAV.

Dinh Viet Thang, director of CAAV, said that some Taiwanese airlines had offered to resume flights to Vietnam. Local airlines are also ready to resume international flights, he added.

Vietnam, which remained 74 days without community transmission, now allows experts and highly skilled workers to enter the country with a mandatory quarantine of 14 days. Tourists, however, are still prohibited from entering the country.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said last week that Vietnam was not yet ready to open up to international touristsand authorities must prevent a second wave of the new coronavirus from breaking locally.

Some ASEAN countries, such as Singapore and Thailand, are considering creating “travel bubbles” to resume their own tourism activities.
