Vietnam currently provides an automatic extension of temporary stay through June 30, 2020 for foreigners who entered Vietnam with a visa exemption certificate, e-visa, or tourist visa on or after March 1, 2020, and intend to depart Vietnam during the period of extension. Individuals under this qualifying group may exit Vietnam during this period without having to apply for an extension of stay.
The Vietnamese government announced that non-essential businesses, except for discotheques and karaoke lounges, may reopen. Schools have also reopened.
The Vietnamese government is still suspending entry into Vietnam to all foreigners, including people with a Vietnamese visa exemption certificate. Only Vietnamese nationals, foreigners on diplomatic or official business, and highly skilled workers are allowed to enter the country at this time. All persons entering Vietnam must undergo medical checks and 14-day quarantine upon arrival.
