The reopening will see the Ho Chi Minh City - Bangkok route operate flights each Friday throughout April.

The detail of the flight schedule and other information about air tickets will be available through the official website www.vietjetair.com, the mobile app “Vietjet Air”, the Facebook page www.facebook.com/vietjetvietnam, and the carrier’s agents operating nationwide.
In line with entry regulations of regional destinations, flights departing from the nation to foreign countries will only serve the needs of Vietnamese people who are going abroad for the purpose of studying, working, and visiting relatives. In addition, foreign nationals based locally who are returning home in accordance with the regulations of each respective country will also be permitted to travel.
VietJet Air has suggested that passengers should be active when referring to the various entry regulations put out by the various embassies of foreign countries, whilst they should also fully prepare all necessary documents and procedures ahead of their departure.
The Vietnamese budget airline will continue to implement immigration regulations set out by the Vietnamese Government and will conduct repatriation flights and flights for foreign experts, once permission is granted by competent agencies.
All flights will have to follow regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control measures imposed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Ministry of Health.
The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) on March 29 emphasized the need to reopen the international tourism market, while simultaneously highlighting the importance of setting out a roadmap and various conditions in order to open borders for tourists once COVID-19 preventive measures have been put in place.
Relevant authorities have been negotiating with international partners in order to quickly import the COVID-19 vaccine while also promoting the research and development of domestically produced vaccines in an effort to ensure a consistent supply source for the entire population as swiftly as possible.
Furthermore, domestic tourism has bounced back with localities deploying a range of promotional activities in a bid to attract tourists for the summer season and the upcoming holiday, National Reunification Day on April 30, and May Day.
The VNAT has therefore collaborated with relevant agencies in order to devise a pilot plan aimed at welcoming international visitors moving forward under the Prime Minister's direction on the proposal to open borders for foreign arrivals amid complicated developments relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It has also underscored the importance of launching a pilot scheme to welcome international visitors by selecting countries that have effectively contained the pandemic, including Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Taiwan (China).
According to the VNAT, flights must be direct ones that are conducted by travel firms that the required level of human resources and financial backing to fully meet the conditions set by state agencies.
Moreover, the destinations of international visitors will be required to full abide by disease preventive measures, with the top priority being given to renowned tourist sites such as those located by the sea or on the mountain, that can suit the needs and tastes of tourists amid the complex nature of the pandemic.
