To meet the pandemic prevention and control regulations, passengers departing from Tan Son Nhat airport in HCM City are required to have a negative test result for SARS-CoV-2 by RT-PCR method or quick antigen test with validity no more than 72 hours from departure time.

Meanwhile, passengers travelling from Van Don need to meet one of the three conditions, either having been fully vaccinated for over 14 days, or having recovered from COVID-19 within the previous six months or testing negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours before departure.

The resumption of the commercial flights on Van Don – HCM City is to meet travel needs between the above-mentioned localities in the context that the Government allows the reopening of regular domestic air routes to ensure safe, flexible adaption to and effective control of COVID-19./.
