Foreigners want Vietnam to scrap requirements for Covid test before arrival, insurance coverage, even mask wearing, and relax visa issuance.

"Please scrap the testing requirements asap as it is no longer meaningful since the virus is endemic and most people won't die from the infection."
William Teo

"Remove PCR testing for tourists, like Europe. No one wants to spend extra money on that, and we have to live with the virus now, we can't live in fear forever."

"Everyone else does (scraps Covid test requirement), to great effectiveness. What is Vietnam waiting for? You cannot keep leading from behind."

"I don't come to Vietnam for vacation this summer because of Covid test."

"The health insurance requirement is a huge obstacle to people over 65. It effectively excludes older people and it should be removed. The policy should be changed to allow people the option to self-insure (cash deposit or cash in the bank). Better yet, just require proof of vaccination and forget about the insurance."

"And the most annoying and useless: remove the masks requirement. We wanna breathe!"
Teal Burton

"A lot of retired expats would like to see at least the 3-month visa come back for entry to Vietnam, this would really boost tourism."

"It's crazy difficult to get visa in Canada. I been trying for a month, they (the agent) said that they want to but Vietnam is still not letting them."
