Việt Nam to cooperate with China to facilitate entry and goods transportation following reopening: Foreign ministry

January 13, 2023

HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday remarked on visa and entry as well as cross-border goods transportation issues related to the recent reopening of China after years of the neighbouring country’s strict adherence to zero COVID-19. These were in accordance with the regulations of the Law on Entry, Exit, Transit, and Residence of foreigners in Việt Nam, amended and supplemented in 2019 and documents instructing the implementation of this law. This move facilitates the entry of tourists, experts and investors into Việt Nam and contributes to fulfilling the socio-economic recovery and development goals on the basis of ensuring COVID-19 prevention, deputy spokesperson Hằng said. “With China’s official reopening and the COVID-19 situation under control in Việt Nam, Vietnamese authorities are working closely with Chinese counterparts to implement cooperation activities in the interest of both sides," she told reporters. “We've also been informed that China’s customs announced that from January 8, it would remove all COVID-19 tests against imported goods, including frozen goods at the border,” the deputy spokesperson remarked.
