Vietnam’s northern province of Quang Ninh, home to UNESCO World Heritage Site Ha Long Bay, will reduce required quarantine times to seven days from 21 for vaccinated foreign travelers, and those who have recovered from Covid-19, in a July trial program, VnExpress news website reported.

Visitors from countries that have achieved herd immunity or managed the virus outbreak will be allowed to enter Vietnam, the news website reported, citing a decision by Deputy Health Minister Do Xuan Tuyen on Friday. The report did not provide details about which nations are deemed acceptable.
