Authorities in Da Nang City have announced a list of five accommodation facilities and three tourist sites that can admit foreign tourists under a vaccine passport trial program.

They are Vinpearl Condotel Riverfront Danang, Vinpearl Resort and Spa, Vinpearl Luxury Resort, Risemount Resort Danang, and Muong Thanh Luxury Da Nang Hotel.

The tourist attractions are Sun World Ba Na Hills, Marble Mountains and Cham Sculpture Museum.

Seven travel companies, Marketing Highland, Viet Holidays, Hanatour Vietnam, Vietnam TravelMart, Totobooking Hai Van Cat International and TST, are waiting for approval to provide tour services.

Da Nang is one of five localities that fully vaccinated foreign tourists are allowed to visit under the trial program, the others being Khanh Hoa, Kien Giang, Quang Nam, and Quang Ninh provinces.

The city hopes to receive over 11,000 visitors this month. All of them need to furnish certificates showing they are fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid, and tested negative within 72 hours before departure.

They are also required to book a package tour with a designated travel agency, have medical or travel insurance including coverage for Covid-19 treatment worth at least $50,000 and install the IGOVN and PC-Covid health declaration applications on their phones while in Vietnam.

In less than three weeks since reopening to international tourism in mid-November, Vietnam has seen 978 foreign tourists visit Quang Nam, Khanh Hoa and Kien Giang.

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