According to the provincial Department of Tourism, the province intends to receive domestic tourists from October 15 and foreign ones from December this year.

Visitors must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have received one shot of COVID-19 vaccine but test negative for the virus, she said.
As for international tourists, they should be given their second shots at least 14 days and no more than 12 months before their entry. For those who have recovered from COVID-19, the time from hospital discharge to their entry date must not exceed 12 months.
The plan will be applied for visitors who have registered to join package tours of travel agencies.
