Level 4 Travel Warning for Vietnam
March 1, 2022
On February 28, 2022 the U.S. Department of State updated its Travel Advisory for Vietnam and raised the Travel Advisory Level to Level 4: Do Not Travel. This upgrade reflects the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Level 4 Health Travel Notice indicating that there is a very high level of COVID-19 in Vietnam. For more information, please refer to the advisory and CDC notice.
The COVID-19 situation in Vietnam is constantly changing and varies from province to province. All U.S. citizens are advised to check with local friends, landlords, employers, or ward-level government officials to be aware of the most up-to-date information for each ward, district, or city. Government of Vietnam regulations regarding business operations, quarantine, movement, and travel restrictions in all parts of Vietnam can change with little notice.
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.
