Khanh Hoa to welcome Russian tourists with “vaccine passports”

VOV.VN - The southcentral province of Khanh Hoa is poised to welcome 8,000 Russian tourists with vaccine passports between December 26 and late March, 2022.

According to the schedule, a group of Russians will touch down at Cam Ranh International Airport at 6:00 a.m. on December 26 and enjoy a package tour ran by tour operator Anex Tour Russia.

This will mark the first group of Russian tourists after nearly two years of travel disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following the arrival of the first flight, the tour operator will organise two flights each week, with every trip bringing a further 300 Russian tourists to the province.

The fully vaccinated tourists will arrive in Khanh Hoa on charter flights and stay for at least seven nights at a designated resort on Long Beach in Cam Lam district, around 10 kilometres from Nha Trang.

Before the pandemic hit the country, Khanh Hoa would typically receive 500,000 Russian tourists each year, with the Eastern European  country making up the second largest tourist market for Khanh Hoa, behind only China.

This comes following the locality piloting a scheme to welcome 2,000 tourists from the Republic of Korea and Japan with vaccine passports.
