Suncity Holding’s Hoiana resort in central Vietnam is set to welcome visitors from the U.S. this week under a vaccine passport program, according to local media.

Two charter flights are set to arrive, carrying more than 400 passengers, VN Express reports. The first flight will land on Chu Lai Airport on Wednesday with a second arriving on Thursday.

They will stay at the resort for seven days and will be able to visit UNESCO heritage sites Hoi An and My Son Sanctuary, amongst other tourism attractions.

They will be among the first foreign tourists to arrive in the country since borders were closed in March 2020.

All tourists need to have a certificate showing they are fully vaccinated and to show a negative Covid test within 72 hours of departure.

Vietnam has begun reopening its doors, with five provinces to be allowed to accept tourists in the first phase of reopening.
