The Hanoi Department of Foreign Affairs has been assigned to receive entry and Covid-19 quarantine dossiers by diplomatic missions, international organisations, foreign NGOs, and representative offices of foreign press agencies in Vietnam, as per a document dated May 29, 2021

The municipal Department of Foreign Affairs has issued guidelines in this regard.

Who are considered for entry, medical quarantine?

According to the document issued by the municipal Department of Foreign Affairs, those who are considered for entry and medical quarantine comprise: foreigners working for diplomatic missions, international organisations, foreign NGOs, and representative offices of foreign press agencies in Vietnam.

Relatives (father, mother, spouse and children) of foreign diplomats and employees of foreign NGOs are also eligible for consideration.

Entry and medical quarantine dossiers

Entry and medical quarantine dossiers include applications for entry and medical quarantine to be sent to the Department of Foreign Affairs, with adequate information (name, job title, nationality; entry date, flight number, place of entry; the address of the paid quarantine facility designated by the city; and statement of responsibility for the provided information).

Entrants also need to take coronavirus tests by Real time-PCR within three to seven days of entry into Vietnam. The SARS-Cov-2 tests must be conducted at laboratories approved by the government or belonging to the testing lab system of the WHO.

Entrants must observe Covid-19 prevention and control regulations and pay treatment cost if they are infected with the coronavirus (in case they have no international health insurance).

Other papers required in the entry and medical quarantine dossier are a copy of passport and identification documents (diplomatic passport, diplomatic identity card or operation licence in Hanoi and work permit granted by competent authorities).

The dossier also needs identification by central management agencies (Directorate of State Protocol, Consular Department, Press and Information Department, regional departments of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations and the People’s Aid Co-ordinating Committee).

Notes

The municipal Department of Foreign Affairs receives and handles dossiers of the above-said agencies and organisations. Within five days of dossiers of the organisations and agencies receiving the identification of central management agencies, the department will send documents (attached with the dossiers) to the city Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control via the municipal Health Department, for entry consideration and approval, and medical quarantine guidelines.

The health department receives the documents from the Department of Foreign Affairs along with dossiers of entrants. The director of the health department will, on behalf of the head of the city Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control, issue a document approving the list of entrants and medical quarantine guidelines in the city.

The approved relevant documents will be forwarded to the Department of Foreign Affairs that will inform organisations of entrants, as well as to district medical centres and state-designated quarantine centres for implementation.

The Department of Foreign Affairs has asked People’s Committees of districts and towns to instruct concentrated quarantine facilities in these localities to follow quarantine regulations. Before the end of the quarantine period (two days), they need to inform the Department of Foreign Affairs, People’s Committee of districts and towns, and relevant agencies to ask for coordination, hand-over and further health monitoring at residences in accordance with legal regulations.
