Pilot scheme to welcome foreign arrivals to Phu Quoc granted approval

Update: 21/07/2021
The Ministry of Transport has agreed on the contents of a pilot project which aims to welcome back international tourists to Phu Quoc island city in the southern province of Kien Giang.

Ministry of Transport representatives emphasised the need to devise a comprehensive and thorough plan in order to ensure both the safety of local people and preventing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic among the island city’s community.

Due to this, priority must be given to the implementation of the vaccination plan for local residents, whilst supervising international visitors during their stay and devising a concrete scheme for the workforce who will be directly involved in welcoming foreign travelers.

Furthermore, the Ministry of Transport has also proposed that it will change some contents relating to the draft pilot scheme, with Phu Quoc set to receive international tourists with vaccine passports through charter flights or regular international flights.

With this in mind, the Ministry of Transport has requested that relevant ministries swiftly devise a detailed plan aimed at handling violation cases by ensuring a quarantine place for passengers who are refused entry or are waiting for exit procedures.
