NDO – People who enter Vietnam and are subject to concentrated quarantine will have to pay for quarantine fees following the approval of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

The Government leader has agreed with the proposal from the Ministry of Finance on collecting concentrated quarantine fees from those entering Vietnam.

Accordingly, the arrivals will pay a cost of VND120,000 (US$5.2) per day including VND80,000 for food and VND40,000 for daily necessities at concentrated quarantine facilities.

If people entering Vietnam wish to perform quarantine at hotels or resorts they will have to pay for the quarantine costs according to the policy of such hotels and resorts.

The PM also ordered all arrivals to Vietnam to conduct SARS-CoV-2 tests and pay for the testing costs by themselves.

The costs for COVID-19 examination and treatment for Vietnamese people will be paid by the State budget while the cases of foreigners will be submitted to the National Assembly for consideration.

The collection of fees will be applied to arrivals to Vietnam from September 1.
