No, Travel Insurance is not required as a Vietnam entry requirement for UAE residents. There is no need for self-isolation, and all requirements for SARS-CoV-2 testing in advance of the arrival will be temporarily postponed. UAE travelers need to follow the following guideline for a secure trip to Vietnam:
- The Vietnamese Government temporarily suspended pre-entry Covid test requirements from May 15th, 2022.
- Travelers are not required to quarantine upon arrival
- Within 10 days before their departure: UAE travelers are advised to self-monitor their health. If they have symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 infection (fever; cough; sore throat; runny nose, stuffy nose; body aches, fatigue, chills; decreased or lost taste; decreased or lost sense of smell; pain, headache; diarrhea; difficulty breathing; respiratory inflammation...), they must immediately notify the nearest medical facility for instructions.
Although it is not mandatory, UAE passport holders should purchase a travel insurance plan to ensure a secure trip to Vietnam. This is not to mention travel insurance will help their visa application be approved by the Vietnamese Government easier. The Vietnam Immigration Services is happy to work with Trawick Insurance, one of Forbes' top-rated travel insurance providers.
