In the first phase from November, tourists will be allowed to visit Hoi An town and My Son Sanctuary, a complex of abandoned and partly ruined Hindu temples constructed between the 4th and 14th centuries by the Champa Kingdom.

Three five-star accommodation facilities, Hoiana Resort, TUI BLUE Nam Hoi An and Vinpearl Resort & Golf Nam Hoi An, will be allowed to have foreign guests.

Tourist attractions such as VinWonders Nam Hoi An and Vinpearl Golf Nam Hoi An will also be allowed to admit tourists.

Visitors need to furnish a certificate showing they were fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to arrival or recovered from Covid. Visitors under 18 should produce a negative Covid test certificate.

They are required to book a package tour with a designated travel agency and have medical and travel insurance.

In the second phase from January 2022 provincial authorities will expand the list of resorts and tourist destinations.

Subsequently, Quang Nam will fully reopen to foreign tourists.

It plans to vaccinate 90 percent of its population and hopefully achieve herd immunity by mid-November.

It was one of five localities to get approval from the government to allow in foreign tourists from November along with Kien Giang, Khanh Hoa and Quang Ninh provinces and Da Nang as part of a roadmap to gradually resume international tourism.

Quang Nam received over 4.6 million foreign tourists in 2019.

Vietnam closed its borders to foreign tourists and canceled all international flights since March last year.
