Budget carrier Vietjet Air has sought approval to fly 250 South Korean tourists to Phu Quoc Island on November 20 under a vaccine passport program.

If approved by local authorities and the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, the flight will depart from South Korea's Incheon and arrive at Phu Quoc Airport at noon on November 20, the carrier said as cited by Bao Van Hoa run by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The visitors would be taken to Vinpearl Resort and Spa Phu Quoc for a three-day tour package.

They would be allowed to visit VinWonder Amusement Park, Vinpearl Safari, Vinpearl Golf, Corona Casino, and GrandWorld Complex.

All need to furnish certificates showing they are fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid and tested negative within 72 hours before departure from Korea.

They are required to install IGOVN and PC-Covid health declaration applications on their smartphones while in Vietnam.

The return flight is on November 23.

Phu Quoc is one of five places to get the greenlight from the government to welcome back fully immunized tourists from November along with Quang Nam, Khanh Hoa, Quang Ninh, and Da Nang.

Vietnam's largest island gained global fame after the government introduced 30-day visa-free entry in 2014.

In 2019 it received over five million visitors, including 541,600 foreigners.
