The health ministry earlier announced the official form of Vietnam’s COVID-19 vaccine passport and the procedures of issuance.

The vaccine passports have 11 fields of information: name, date of birth, nationality, targeted disease, doses of vaccines received, date of vaccination, lot number of the vaccine batch, type of vaccine, vaccine product received, the vaccine manufacturer, and a code for the certification.

Vietnam is planning to resume international flights from January 1, 2022, beginning first with those to and from Bangkok (Thailand), Beijing/Guangzhou (China), Phnom Penh (Cambodia), San Francisco or Los Angeles (the US), Seoul (South Korea), Singapore, Taiwan, Tokyo (Japan), and Vientiane (Laos).
