Message for U.S. Citizens
September 7, 2021

Ho Chi Minh City authorities announced the extension of the current military-enforced lockdown until at least September 15.  Ho Chi Minh City authorities also announced the reopening of the city will be segmented and phased.

In the coming weeks conditions will vary throughout different districts and wards in Ho Chi Minh City. U.S. citizens are advised to monitor local news outlets and observe changes in local behavior as well as to consult with local authorities, employers, landlords, and neighbors for guidance on current conditions in your ward or district.

The U.S. Mission in Vietnam reminds all U.S. citizens that they are subject to local laws and regulations while visiting or living in Vietnam.  We advise U.S. citizens to comply with the Government of Vietnam’s testing and quarantine requirements.

U.S. citizens should refrain from gathering in large groups and monitor local news and government restrictions to avoid travel disruptions.  Government of Vietnam regulations regarding business operations, quarantine, movement, and travel restrictions in all parts of Vietnam can change with little notice.

Please see the U.S. Mission in Vietnam’s COVID-19 Information Page for additional information regarding the COVID-19 situation in the country.
