Local Guidelines

Although restrictions are gradually lifting in most areas, authorities may introduce localized lockdowns and quarantine restrictions with little or no prior warning if there is a suspected outbreak. This can result in individual testing and hospitalization or community self-isolation and testing. Gatherings are limited to a maximum of 30 people in Hanoi and 20 people in Ho Chi Minh City and Danang. Proof of vaccination or recovery may be required to attend events or to access some facilities.
