- Monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for 11 days after leaving quarantine
Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers will be required to:
- Quarantine for seven days
- Undergo COVID-19 testing before arrival in Vietnam and on the third and seventh day of quarantine following arrival
- Monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for seven days after leaving quarantine
