Quang Ninh has not recorded a single coronavirus case in the community over the past weeks, paving the way for the locality to resume its tourism services for domestic visitors at present and even foreign holidaymakers in the near future.
The province has developed a plan to recover tourism and attract more visitors in the fourth quarter of the year, with a primary focus on designing a safe tourism model and minimizing epidemic risks for visitors and local residents.
Under the model, each tourism establishment in the locality must provide their best quality products and offer safe services to guests at a reasonable price, by taking advantage of tourism stimulus policies in the province.
Localities will implement a number of measures aimed at stimulating domestic tourism in line with local strengths as well as guidelines on COVID-19 prevention and control.
Quang Ninh is speeding up its vaccination campaign, and once all local residents are fully vaccinated in November, the province will implement a pilot scheme to welcome domestic tourists from provinces and cities nationwide that have the pandemic under control.
It will also reopen the door for foreign visitors with a vaccine passport as soon as conditions permit.
