At a dialogue with the EU business community on June 30, Minister Dung notified that the prime minister had assigned the Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Health, and related agencies to study the reopening of borders and resume commercial air travel among select countries. 

A number of foreign experts, skilled laborers, business executives, investors, and their relatives have been allowed to enter Vietnam, Minister Dung said. However, they must undergo a 14-day isolation period at home, hotels or office as regulated.

Regarding the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), Minister Dung said the government is open to any specific proposals to facilitate trade reconnection and the resumption of supply – demand activities, especially proposals from the European business community in Vietnam.

Nguyen Hai Minh, vice president of EuroCham Vietnam, said that procedures for the entry of experts and investors into Vietnam have been conducted inconsistently in localities. 

Vietnam has banned foreign entry and stopped issuing visas in March. Specific cases include entry for diplomatic and official purposes, experts, business executives and highly qualified workers and those cases specified by the National Steering Committee for the Covid-19 Prevention and Control.

The country has not granted permission for inbound flights, except for specific cases, according to an announcement by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), from June 16 to September 16.
