Info for travellers on COVID-19 in Vietnam
UPDATED: March 7, 2020
Since the start of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Vietnam has closely monitored the situation and installed a series of proactive, comprehensive measures to combat the spread of the virus within the country and prepare its public health facilities. Past experience with other epidemics places Vietnam in a strong position to protect its population as well as visitors passing through.

Travellers in Vietnam or those planning holidays in early 2020 may have questions about the spread of the virus in Vietnam, as well as which destinations are still safe and open to visit. Below is a full overview of the COVID-19 situation in Vietnam as it relates to travellers.

The first confirmed cases of COVID-19 appeared in Vietnam on Jan. 23, 2020. Of the confirmed cases that have appeared in Vietnam to date, 17 are Vietnamese, two are Chinese and one is American.

Confirmed infections have been found in the northern province of Vinh Phuc (11), in Ho Chi Minh City (3), Hanoi (1), Nha Trang in Khanh Hoa province (1), Thai Binh in Quang Ninh Province (1), and Thanh Hoa (1).

Preventative steps by the Vietnamese government

In addition to these, many private Vietnamese businesses, residential complexes and tourist accommodations have installed their own preventative measures to keep customers safe.

The National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control has launched an online management and administration centre for COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment, that will support medical facilities in treating COVID-19 patients directly or virtually.

On March 6, Vietnam announced it will produce 10,000 COVID-19 test kits daily, after a successful pilot and approval from the World Health Organization (WHO).

Flights and visa polices related to COVID-19 in Vietnam


Since February 1, all flights to and from mainland China on all airlines have been indefinitely suspended by the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam. Flights connecting to Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan are operational with many airlines running reduced routes.

Vietnam Airlines and Bamboo Airways have suspended flights between South Korea and Vietnam, while other airlines have reduced flights between the two countries. Jetstar Pacific will suspend flights from Da Nang to Kaohsiung and Taipei from March 5 to 31, while Vietjet will suspend flights between Vietnam and Korea from July 7.

Vietnam has temporarily suspended visa exemptions for citizens of South Korea and Italy. With special exceptions only, all travellers arriving from and who have transited through mainland China, Daegu and Gyeongsangbuk within the past 14 days will be refused entry to Vietnam at this time.

AirAsia has some cheap fares right now, presumably as a response to cancelled bookings/empty seats. I just booked PP-KL return next month for $41. And they have KL-Melbourne/Avalon very cheap too. But be sure to pack your hand sanitiser and face mask, and *don't touch anything on the plane*

When traveling though airports, plane etc how do you know if you hàve been in contact with someone suspected of having the virus, they don't have a sign on them.
So after your travels do you self isolate or not do you take the risk of unknowingly infecting others

It's not possible to know. People can be asymptomatic. You may already have it. I may already have it. Try not to touch or cough on old people I guess. They're the ones most at risk.

Close to home, travel around the Kingdom of Wonder being that it must be the most safe place in Asia with very few cases of the virus. I was just on a little tour but seeing the latest news, stopped put. What are your views of the area where you live?
Always "hope" but never "expect".
