Accordingly, the City will focus on resuming tourism activities in the new situation under the motto "Proactive - adaptive - flexible to effectively restore tourism and ensure the safety of tourists, tourism workers, and the community”.
The Department of Tourism instructed service establishments to ensure their operating conditions are guided by Resolution No. 128/NQ-CP dated October 11th, 2021, promulgating the temporary regulation "Adapting safely, flexibly, and effectively to control COVID-19" in cultural, sport, and tourism activities.
Da Nang will organize the domestic reception of tourists in two phases: restart tourism activities and services in the City from October and provide services for interregional tourists from November.
For international visitors, the City will implement the following programs, with approval of the Government and relevant ministries, in 3 phases: In Phase 1, the city will receive foreign visitors through packaged tours, charter flights, and regular commercial flights on a trial basis from November; Phase 2 expands the scope of international tourists by connecting destinations through charter flights and regularly scheduled international flights from January 2022; and in Phase 3, the city fully reopens to international tourists.
The program is an extraordinary milestone marking the return of Da Nang's tourism industry. Hopefully with the City's determination in opening up tourism, resuming economic development, and implementing strict solutions in the prevention of COVID-19, Da Nang will attract more domestic and foreign tourists.
