when is it safe to travel Vietnam?

I was planning to travel #Vietnam this September but whether it is safe or not, anyone know, any advice?

Vietnam is safe to travel even right now. It was the country where the pandemic was stopped most quickly and efficiently.

The question is when does Vietnam open its borders for tourists from the EU(I see you're from the Netherlands), when will flights resume and when will your own government let you travel abroad.

I think you have a good chance that you can travel in September, but don't book anything until it is certain.

No new cases of Corona since 2 weeks and only 50 people in hospitals (out of 97 million inhabitants !).Most things have reopened, except some fancy restaurants with a mostly foreign clientele (some have closed definitely because of sky-high rent).

Nothing new ! Most things reopened, including Halong Bay, but borders still closed to Foreigners and stores, banks, etc. still ask you to wear a mask to enter (masks are for sale in every pharmacy)

The first countries to be allowed entry initially to Vietnam are likely to be those with no new levels of Covid 19 infections such as neighbouring Asian, ASEAN countries and possibly New Zealand and Australia.

Europe, UK and USA are all likely to be at the back of the queue.

Stay safe all !

It adds 40 new countries to e-visas and the gates might be opened, BUT it says also that " This is an initial step showing Vietnam is planning to open up again....for the policy to fully manifest, there has to be resumption of flight routes as well, apart from other things. Open or not, no flights = no travel to Vietnam !

I will add that things start getting better in Western Europe, so flights from there might resume sooner than we thought. As for the USA, I am afraid our American friends are going to have to wait much longer than Europeans !
