The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) re-affirmed a commitment that nobody is left behind as the world begins to open up again and look to the future, in a bid to build a more prosperous and peaceful world through tourism.

Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Doan Van Viet recently attended a ministerial session on re-opening ASEAN tourism destinations for international tourists held within the framework of Global Tourism Indonesia 2021.

Viet said that in September, the Prime Minister ordered studying a pilot programme to welcome international tourists to Phu Quoc island offshore southern Kien Giang province.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism is mulling over the plan and working to choose suitable group of tourists and step up vaccinations in Phu Quoc before the launch of the pilot programme scheduled for October.

In the projected procedures, before arrival, visitors will be asked to install the “Vietnam Safe Travel” app to fill in vaccination status and necessary medical information. A QR code will be generated to each holidaymaker.

The VNAT over the time has strived to update, improve and complete functions of the app so as to serve international tourists, including display in English language and the integration of COVID-19 vaccine verification system in line with European standards./.
