Phu Quoc, vietnam

Vietnam’s resort island of Phu Quoc welcomed back its first batch of tourists on Saturday, with 200 travelers from South Korea making their way to the island without needing to serve quarantine. 

The tourists came via a Vietjet Air flight, and were met with a welcome ceremony at the Phu Quoc International airport, which was attended by the General Director of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism Nguyen Trung Khanh, Deputy Director of Vietnam Civil Aviation Department Vo Huy Cuong, leaders of Kien Giang Province and ministries, as well as representatives of Vietjet Air, Vinpearl Joint Stock Company and Marketing Highland Travel Company.

All tourists went through an airport health screening and were required to install a Covid-19 check-in and tracing app before arriving at their resort.

All tourists will be able to travel within a “tourist bubble” whilst on the island – which permits them to stay at the Vinpearl Resort and Spa Phu Quoc, the Phu Quoc United Center, Vinpearl Golf, VinWonders theme park, Vinpearl Safari, Corona Casino and the Grand World Phu Quoc. 

Tourists are also required to test for Covid-19 on the first and last day of their vacation.
