Foreign arrivals soar two months after border reopening

VOV.VN - The number of foreign visitors to Vietnam has increased rapidly with 252,000 arrivals after the government reopened borders on March 15, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT).

The past month saw travelers from traditional markets such as Europe, America, and the Republic of Korea (RoK) visit the country, along with from emerging markets like Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and India

On April 29, Da Nang welcomed back the first 220 RoK visitors following the COVID-19 pandemic, while the ancient town of Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City received roughly 130 American travelers.

In order to attract further international visitors, especially during the peak season from September onwards, the VNAT emphasised that the local tourism industry has been advised to deploy a range of major solutions by organising international tourism fairs abroad, facilitating entry and exit procedures, and granting visas for guests from key markets.

The VNAT also underscored the importance of resolving difficulties faced in establishing representative offices for overseas tourism promotion activities, which is anticipated to greatly contribute to elevating Vietnamese tourism abroad.

The VNAT also reported between April 30 and May 1 Vietnam received about five million domestic tourists, earning a revenue of roughly VND22 trillion.

Most notably, Thanh Hoa, Hanoi, and Da Nang welcomed nearly 900,000 visitors, 550,000 visitors, and 254,000 respectively during the recent four-day national holiday.

The recovery of the tourism market during the recent holiday is anticipated to offer fresh impetus to reviving the local tourism industry moving into the post-pandemic period.
