Khanh Hoa Province is scheduled to welcome around 9,351 foreign tourists from Southeast and Northeast Asian countries by the end of this year, provincial authorities revealed.

The tourists would arrive in the province, home to famous beach towns Nha Trang and Cam Ranh, under a vaccine passport program on 48 flights from South Korea, Japan, Russia, the Philippines and Cambodia, Voice of Vietnam reported, citing provincial authorities.

As of Monday, 24 accommodation facilities on Long Beach in Cam Ranh Peninsula, around 45 kilometers from Nha Trang, and other isolated areas have been allowed to host foreign tourists.

Places approved to serve foreign tourists include Ana Marina Nha Trang, Yangbay tourist park, Hon Tam Islet, Truong Son craft village and Hoa Lan Stream tourist area.

Khanh Hoa is one of five localities allowed to welcome fully vaccinated foreign tourists from November onwards along with Quang Nam, Kien Giang, Quang Ninh and Da Nang.

On Nov. 11, Khanh Hoa welcomed two flights from South Korea and Japan carrying 429 passengers.

Kien Giang and Quang Nam received the first groups of foreign tourists after nearly two years last week.

Vietnam closed its doors to foreigners and grounded international flights in March 2020, and has since allowed entry to only Vietnamese repatriates, foreign experts and highly-skilled workers.
