Removal of health declaration from April 27

From 0:00, April 27, the Ministry of Health will remove the medical declaration requirement for people entering Vietnam at all border gates. This decision was made in the context of a decrease in the number of new cases and deaths from Covid-19 in Vietnam as well as around the world.

The provinces still maintain the supervision of passengers at the border gate according to the provisions of the Law on Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases on Border Medical Quarantine.

Thus, visitors entering Vietnam do not need to make medical declarations anymore, however, they are still subject to surveillance measures to prevent disease. This decision of the Ministry of Health is said to have relaxed measures to prevent and control the pandemic, creating favorable conditions for people and tourists travelling to Vietnam.

In mid-April, passengers at Tan Son Nhat Airport (HCMC) were congested because they had to make an electronic medical declaration and waited for airport staff to check. Many cases of undeclared or false declaration make the situation worse. Ho Chi Minh City leaders proposed to stop medical declarations for people entering the country, only asking for self-monitoring and reporting via PC-Covid app.

Regulations on domestic medical declaration will also be terminated in the near future, according to Health Minister Nguyen Thanh Long. However, the specific time is unknown.
