19 countries recognize Vietnam’s vaccine passport

VOV.VN - Vietnam and 19 countries have so far reached agreements on mutual recognition of their vaccine passports, said Pham Thu Hang, deputy spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), at a regular press conference held on April 7.

The 19 foreign countries are the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, Belarus, India, Cambodia, the Philippines, the Maldives, Palestine, Turkey, Egypt, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Singapore, Saint Lucia, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, and Iran.

Holders of “vaccine passports” from these countries and Vietnam will be entitled to the same medical requirements as those of local people who have been vaccinated, Hang noted. Indeed, the recognition includes the exemption of procedures for consular authentication and legalisation when making use of these papers in the countries of destination.

The Health Ministry announced on April 4 that Vietnam will begin issuing its vaccine passport for citizens from April 15.

The passport will be available on the PC COVID-19 or Digital Health apps. In case people don’t have these apps, then they can get their passport via email by accessing the Ministry of Health’s portal and filling in necessary information.
