Press release from: e-visa-vietnam

The short answer is yes. You can still go to Vietnam. However, the country currently applies some restrictions due to the Coronavirus outbreak. In this article, you are going to learn what you need to know if you wanted to travel to Vietnam in this situation.

Visa Exemption New Rules

The Vietnamese authorities confirmed at the end of February 2020 about the provisional suspension of the 15-day visa exemption for citizens of 8 new countries, including Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and Spain.

Therefore, the citizens of these countries must have a valid eVisa to Vietnam. Please contact us through the website for this purpose.
Within the plane in which we travel to Vietnam, we must take extreme precautions. It is because they are closed rooms. Indeed, the ventilation is worse. The risk of contagion may be higher if any of the passengers has the virus.

Some research suggests that window seats are where we are most protected against viruses. However, this is no use if we have less than two seats on the sides, forward or back of a corona-positive patient. Therefore, the recommendation of the preventive action is "to avoid approaching people who present symptoms of some type of respiratory disease ".

What to do after Arriving in Vietnam

After passengers arriving in Vietnam, you must fill out a medical questionnaire through a mobile application and then scan the QR code upon arrival at the airport. Foreign residents in Vietnam will also need to fill out a medical questionnaire.

The countries with more than 200 confirmed cases are South Korea, Italy, Iran, Germany, France, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Vietnam currently has a total of 31 confirmed cases. Sixteen of them fully recovered and discharged.

Therefore, follow these tips if you still wanted to go to Vietnam safely:

o Avoid close or direct contact with people who may suffer acute respiratory infections, cough, sneeze, expectoration. It is best to keep a distance of one meter and not share your personal belongings.
o Maintain good personal hygiene: wash your hands frequently (with soap and alcohol-based gels, or with liquid soap, between 45 and 60 seconds). This measure is especially essential after direct contact with sick people or their environment.
o Avoid approaching live or dead, domestic, or wild animals, as well as their secretions and excrement in markets or farms.
o Do not consume undercooked or raw animal products.
o If during your stay in affected areas, you present symptoms compatible with an acute respiratory infection, such as fever, cough, or feeling of shortness of breath, the first thing is to contact the local health authorities and follow their recommendations.

Finally, it can be useful to bring alcohol wipes. They have an efficacy similar to gels or a good hand wash and can help us disinfect the objects we touch most often. Gloves also act as a barrier between the virus and the hands, but it does not prevent the things we touch from becoming contaminated.

To use them effectively, we have to wash our hands very well before putting them on and immediately after taking them off. We also can't touch our faces with them because that way, we may be infected.
