TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan has been included on a list of countries whose vaccination certificates are recognized by the Vietnamese government.

The document, consisting of 72 nations and regions, was issued by Vietnam on Thursday (Oct. 21).

Earlier this month, Vietnam Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang said the Southeast Asian country will temporarily relax COVID travel restrictions. Therefore, travelers with vaccine passports or certificates from the listed countries and regions will be allowed in, as long as they are fully vaccinated, Liberty Times reported.

Additionally, they will only need to undergo seven days of quarantine. Le said this new regulation will come into effect in November, adding that a renewed wave of international tourists will help domestic tourism to recover.

Taiwanese tourists only need to show their yellow COVID-19 vaccination record or relevant proof of vaccination documents to be able to enter Vietnam.
