This comes a few days after the government allowed the resumption of air services to China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan.
From September 15 and to Laos and Cambodia on September 22.
Furthermore the number of tourists from Thailand rose by 46 percent last year. Many Thai investors have been eyeing the Vietnamese market in recent years.
The PM also ordered the transport ministry to consider increasing the frequency of flights.
Above all to bring in foreign experts and investors and Vietnamese nationals from abroad.
Those entering Vietnam for a period of less than 14 days are required to limit their time at bars, dance clubs, karaoke parlors, and other crowded places to avoid the risk of infection.
The Health Ministry has ruled that they are exempt from centralized quarantine.
