Message for U.S. Citizens

May 16, 2022 

Effective May 15, 2022, the Vietnamese Government no longer requires a negative COVID-19 test prior to entry into Vietnam.  Prior to travel into Vietnam, the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi and U.S. Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City recommend all U.S. citizens check with airlines to confirm airline-specific policies on testing for flying or for transit through other countries.

The U.S. still requires proof of a negative COVID-19 test or a letter of recovery from a doctor prior to entry.  More information about travel into the U.S. can be found at the CDC website.

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

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.
