The decision was issued by Deputy Health Minister Do Xuan Tuyen on Friday, allowing foreign entrants who have been fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19, and test negative for the coronavirus upon arrival, to undergo a seven-day centralized quarantine period instead of the usual 21 days.
They will have to take another seven days in self-isolation.
Quang Ninh is home to Van Don International Airport and the world famous Ha Long Bay. The province will undertake the vaccine passport trial for the entirety of July.
The vaccines accepted under the program are those which have been approved by either the WHO, the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC), the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or Vietnam. The final shot must have been given between 14 days and 12 months prior to the date of entry.
