2. Principles of recognition of vaccine passports

- Vaccine passports are recognized on the principle of reciprocity between Vietnam and the above countries.

- Holders of vaccine passports of these countries entering Vietnam and from Vietnam to these countries may apply the same medical measures as those who have been vaccinated in the host country. This recognition includes exemption from the consular certification/legalization procedure when using this document in the receiving country.

- The Ministry of Foreign Affairs publishes detailed information on the list of countries/territories with similar conditions and the recognized vaccine passport form on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (https://mofa.gov) .vn/vi/) and the Consular Information Portal (https://anhsuvietnam.gov.vn) for monitoring and searching by agencies.

- For vaccine passports of countries and territories that have introduced the official form to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Vietnam, it is recommended that you continue to apply temporary solutions as the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced. In the direction of allowing the vaccinated person to bring the Certificate back to the country directly, the domestic authorities will consider and compare it with the officially introduced templates. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will inform about the adjustment of the above temporary solution in the near future (if any).

- Specific instructions on conditions and recognized vaccine passport form are in the Appendix attached to Official Letter 967/BNG-LS .
