 To guarantee absolute safety for the reception

Currently, many enterprises in the province want to get the permission for their foreign experts to enter Binh Duong to work. Department of Foreign Affairs counseled Provincial People's Committee to have official documents on providing assistance to foreign experts in this issue.

Accordingly, in late July and early August, there were about 49 experts from 23 companies requesting assistance to enter Binh Duong. After the companies followed steps and procedures for foreigners to enter Binh Duong, provincial Department of Health will receive these cases. Specifically, for foreign experts and workers who had been quarantined at border gates or in other provinces, they must have a certificate of quarantine completion before entering Binh Duong, negative testing result at least 2 times for Covid-19 infection, and will continue to be monitored for 14 days at their company or residence. Foreign experts and workers were in quarantine through Moc Bai border gate (Tay Ninh province), Hoa Lu border gate (Binh Phuoc province); then provincial Department of Health must receive written documents of Tay Ninh province Health Department or Binh Phuoc province Health Department on collaboration for reception and quarantine. Binh Duong provincial health authority will arrange personnel and means to receive isolation cases; if less than 20 people, they will be isolated at district health centers; if more than 20 people, they will be isolated at Bau Bang district health center or Becamex My Phuoc buildings (Ben Cat Town). In case of entries from Tan Son Nhat Airport, Military Region 7, they will be quarantined in provinces and cities in the country.

Along with quarantine options, provincial health authority also prepared adequate medicine, medical supplies, equipment, and necessary conditions for the comprehensive implementation of the Covid-19 prevention control measures for foreign experts as prescribed.

To strictly perform quarantine options

Currently, the epidemic situation in the province is under good control, Department of Health, Provincial Permanent Steering Committee of Covid-19 Prevention Control recommended departments, branches, local governments to continue performing quarantine in accordance with the guidance of Ministry of Health. PPC Chairman emphasized the task of safety and health protection for people in the province but not breaking the economy; also asked related branches to handle application for foreign expert's entry to Binh Duong. Department of Foreign Affairs, Department of Labour-Invalids and Social Affairs, Police Department, and Management Board of provincial Industrial Parks counseled People's Committee to decide a list of foreign experts that are permitted to enter Binh Duong, then send the list to Immigration Bureau-Ministry of Public Security for settlement.
