Vietjet will bring the first international tourist group to Vietnam on a flight from South Korea to the country’s famous tourist destination of Phu Quoc island on 20 November, to kick off the country’s pilot “vaccine passport” programme. The flight VJ3749 departing from Incheon International Airport with an expected arrival time of around 12pm will carry 209 South Korean tourists to Vietnam for a 4-day-3-night package tour at Phu Quoc United Center super complex.
As a part of the pilot “vaccine passport” tourism programme in Phu Quoc in particular and Vietnam in general, the first international tourist group arrival will highlight and create a milestone in the country’s efforts to restore the national tourism industry. This will also pave the way for the country’s step-by-step economy’s reopening and development in the new normalcy context. Following the first flight on November 20, 2021, Phu Quoc is expected to welcome 20 international flights each month in the coming time.
The tour’s itinerary has been coordinated by Vinpearl’s strategic partner – Highland Marketing Tourism Company and Vietjet to bring South Korean tourists, who have “vaccine passport” to travel to Phu Quoc United Center following the international arrival guidelines of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and Kien Giang province’s Department of Tourism. This is an important step in affirming Vietnam’s attractiveness and abilities to meet high-class tourism demand and to welcome tourists in a new normal context, creating a “Live Fully” travel experience for international travelers.
The tourists will be subjected to go through a health screening process upon their arrival at the airport and install IGOVN and PC-COVID applications on their phones before leaving for hotel check-ins. All tourists will stay at Vinpearl Resort & Spa Phu Quoc, which has been approved to welcome international visitors in a separate area without community contact and enjoy their stay with various activities including sightseeing, entertainment, dining, and shopping, etc. following the tour’s itinerary at Phu Quoc United Center super complex.
As one of the most talked-about tourism destinations in Asia with beautiful beaches and friendly local people, Phu Quoc has attracted strong levels of investment in hotels and resorts in recent years and become one of the most popular holiday destinations in Vietnam.
