It is considered a positive sign for Việt Nam's tourism sector, especially as it is striving to regain growth momentum.
To promote tourism, the Government is making efforts to organise safe entertainment activities and to issue guidance on treatment of tourists infected with COVID-19 in order to provide friendly and safe tourism services.
Visa and tourism policies are also being reviewed to revive this sector.
Notably, the 31st SEA Games taking place from May 12 to 23 is expected to boost the tourism sector in Hà Nội and other provinces by welcoming thousands of fans and tourists from the region and around the world. VNS
