“Vaccine passport” hoped to support the resumption of international fights
As COVID-19 cases have been on the decline around the world and vaccination programs have been rolled out in many countries, agencies and businesses at home and abroad are hopeful that the introduction of “vaccine passports” will allow the resumption of international flights. These passports are expected to become used globally and boost countries’ confidence in easing movement restrictions, reviving their aviation sector, and bolstering trade and economic development while ensuring safety amid the pandemic.
Vice-Chairman and General Secretary of the Vietnam Aviation Business Association (VABA) Bui Doan Ne said the Government needs to promote quarantine tourism at lodging establishments and develop on-the-spot experiential tourism products which will help domestic and foreign holidaymakers explore the culture and tourism of Vietnam’s regions right during quarantine.
The Government has made preparations for the resumption of international flights and the arrival of foreign tourists holding vaccination certificates, especially from countries with large numbers of visitors, those with potential, and those that have brought the pandemic under control, like in Europe, Australia, China, the Republic of Korea, and Japan.
