Does anyone of you have any clues about restrictions on foreigners flying to Vietnam in the coming time, say May? My partner has an essential employee letter from his company and covid-19 testing results also issued by his company (negative, of course). Does that suffice to exempt him from the 14-day quarantine upon arrival? Many thanks in advance.

The advice from johnspud is correct.

You also refer the legal basis of:
* Announcement 118 of PM dated 22 March.2020.
* Directive No. 158/TB-VPCP dated 16 April.2020 issued by GOV.
* Or Immigration Dept. website:https://xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn/vi/tin-tuc
Other I would like to note, this regulation mention that it s not apply to passengers who are experts, business managers or highly skilled workers however, the definition of that title or detail procedure to obtain the approval from authority is not guide.
