Last Updated:(Hong Kong)2021-01-29
All inbound commercial flights to Vietnam are temporarily suspended except for repatriation flights carrying Vietnamese nationals.
Vietnamese and foreign diplomats and experts entering Vietnam must comply with specific health regulations and undergo mandatory 14-day quarantine on arrival.
All visa exemptions have been suspended.
All foreigners who entered Vietnam after 1 March 2020 on visa exemptions, e-visas or tourism visas will be given automatic stay extension at no charge until 31 January 2021. Travellers still in the country must declare their temporary residence through their landlords or hotels, and must complete Vietnam's online health declaration.
Visitors who entered the country before 1 March 2020 may be considered for the extension, provided they can show an official letter from their embassy or consulate stating they were unable to leave the country due to objective reasons. Foreigners who have undergone quarantine or treatment for COVID-19 in Vietnam are also eligible for the extension. They must bring their certification documents to show immigration officials when leaving Vietnam.
Hong Kong Airlines staff will perform document checks at the airport to confirm if passengers are eligible to travel to destinations with restrictions in place. Passengers without checked baggage and holding mobile or self-print boarding passes will be subject to document check before boarding.
Passengers will also be asked to declare their travel history to help us ensure eligibility to travel.
