Operations of the SE3/SE4 trains on the Hanoi-HCMC route will resume on June 17. The SE3 will depart from Hanoi station at 19:15 every day, then stop at Thanh Hoa, Dong Hoi, Hue, Danang, Dieu Tri, and Nha Trang.

On the Saigon-Hanoi route, the SE4 will leave Saigon station at 19:25 daily, stopover at the stations mentioned above, and arrive at the Hanoi station at 8:30, after over 37 hours.

Earlier, the local railway sector decided to suspend the SE3/SE4 from June 1 due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The sector will operate the SE3/SE4 and SE7/SE8 trains on the north-south rail route every day with the resumption.

A Vietnam Railway Corporation (VNR) representative said that the sector would strictly practice anti-virus measures when it offers its services, including using no more than 50% of each train’s seats, disinfecting carriages, and equipping its trains and stations with an adequate amount of disinfectants.

The VNR representative noted that passengers need to update Covid-19-related information posted on the websites of the localities’ health authorities before booking train tickets.

Further, passengers must make health declarations before getting on board and wear masks during the trip.
