Kien Giang Province authorities have proposed a list of 15 five-star resorts on Phu Quoc Island to house foreign tourists in a two-phase vaccine passport trial program.
Seven will be selected for fully immunized foreign tourists to stay in the first phase from November 20 to March 20 next year.
They are Vinpearl Discovery Costalland Phu Quoc, Vinpearl Discovery Greenhill Phu Quoc, Vinpearl Resort Spa Phu Quoc, Vinholidays Fiesta Phu Quoc, Premier Residences Phu Quoc Emerald Bay, Movenpick Resort Waverly Phu Quoc, and Movenpick Villa and Residences Phu Quoc.

Some tourist attractions will also be allowed to entertain the foreign visitors, including Sun World Hon Thom Nature Park cable car, Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc, Vinpearl Casino, undersea walking tour offered by Namaste Investment and Development Company, and coral diving from D&M Phu Quoc Travel Service Trading Company and Ngoc Hien Pearl.
Four travel companies have also been identified to offer their services in the first phase.
D&M Phu Quoc Tourism Service Trading Company will be added in the second phase.
Visitors need to furnish a certificate showing they were fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to arrival or recovered from Covid while those under 18 must furnish a negative Covid test result.
The government earlier approved plans to allow fully-immunized tourists from Europe, the U.S., Northeast Asia, Australia, and the Middle East to visit Phu Quoc, stay at sequestered resorts and visit designated tourism spots.
Phu Quoc, Vietnam’s largest island , has become internationally popular after the government allowed 30-day visa-free entry in 2014.
In 2019, before the onset of Covid, it received over five million visitors, including 541,600 foreigners.
