Cambodia is one of the 72 countries that Vietnam has approved for entry into the country.
Vietnam is the second ASEAN country to announce that Cambodians and passengers traveling from Cambodia will be allowed to enter the country.
Yesterday, a list of vaccines recognized as vaccine passports was also released.
Vaccine passports from 72 countries have been accepted by Vietnamese authorities to allow people to enter from abroad, and Viet Nam is currently negotiating mutual recognition for each other’s COVID-19 vaccine certification with 80 countries and territories.
Here is the full story!
The information was revealed by Le Th Thu Hang, a spokesperson for the Vietnamese foreign ministry, during a regular press briefing held virtually from Ha Noi on Thursday.
The 72 countries and territories in question are those whose representatives in Viet Nam have officially presented the COVID-19 vaccination and/or recovery documentation to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and temporary recognition has been granted, she said, citing the government’s new guidelines for safe, flexible, and effective adaptation to the COVID-19 pandemic, which were released earlier this month.
People traveling from outside the country with these documents proving that they have either been fully immunized or have recently recovered from COVID-19 can use them to enter Vietnam and are eligible for the seven-day quarantine at centralized facilities, according to the health ministry’s policies.
According to the spokesperson, the vaccine certificates issued by Vietnam have been accepted in a number of countries, allowing Vietnamese nationals or foreigners who have been vaccinated here to enter these countries.
Earlier, the foreign ministry has announced that they would recognize vaccines approved for use by the World Health Organization (WHO), US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), European Medicine Agency (EMA), and the Vietnamese health ministry – meaning that any of these following ten shots would suffice:
- Johnson&Johnson’s Janssen
- Sinopharm’s Vero Cell
Along with the UAE version
- Covishield (Oxford/AstraZeneca formulation, made in India)
- Sputnik V
