The PM, therefore, assigned the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and relevant ministries and agencies, to urgently work alongside relevant agencies of ASEAN countries, the EU, the US, China, Japan, the RoK, and other countries, for the mutual recognition of the ‘vaccine passport’.

Vietnam has successfully conducted four pilot flights to bring home passengers with a vaccine passport. All the passengers were required to be fully vaccinated and have a negative COVID-19 test at least 72 hours before their departure. They were then taken to concentrated quarantine facilities for a course of 7 days as opposed to 14 days as previously.

All the passengers are now in stable health condition.
