Phu Quoc resort welcomes first foreign visitors with vaccine passport

VOV.VN - Vietjet Air flight VJ3749 touched down Phu Quoc International Airport on November 20, bringing 204 vaccinated visitors from the Republic of Korea to Phu Quoc tourist resort in Kien Giang province.

The visitors were welcomed at the airport by leader of Kien Giang and the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, as well as representatives of travel operators.

“The flight has kick-started a pilot scheme to welcome back foreign visitors with a vaccine passport to Vietnam in general and Phu Quoc in particular in an effort to restore the tourism sector that has been hit hard by COVID-19,” said Nguyen Trung Khanh, general director of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism at the ceremony.

“We would like to assure that with our thorough preparations in a new normal foreign visitors will enjoy their stay in Vietnam as evidenced in our motto: Live fully in Vietnam,” added the general director.

After completing immigration procedures, the visitors were transferred to Vinpearl Resort & Spa Phu Quoc where they will be staying and enjoying discovery of major tourist attractions locally.

They will experience a unique journey of world-class tourism services offered by Vinpearl, including discovery tours, food catering, shopping, and festivals as soon as they test negative for the virus.

The visitors are the first to travel to Phu Quoc in Kien Giang after the Vietnamese government decided to pilot reopening its skies to air travel, allowing vaccinated visitors to explore tourist destinations in five localities.

Besides Kien Giang, Quang Nam, Da Nang, Khanh Hoa and Quang Ninh are also allowed to receive foreign visitors on a trial basis.
