At the meeting, the two sides exchanged and shared information about Vietnam's tourism opening activities. Accordingly, from March 15, 2022, Vietnam has completely opened up international tourism activities with flexible conditions. International tourist just show  negative SARS-CoV-2 test result using RT-PCR/RT-LAMP method within 72 hours before entry into Vietnam or negative rapid test result within 24 hours before departure certified by the competent authority of the country where the test is performed.

In 2019, Vietnam welcomed more than 920 thousands arrivals from Taiwan. Under Vietnam's open-door policy, the two sides believed that will soon complete the goal of exchanging 1.5 million visitors, including 1 million Taiwanese visitor arrivals to Vietnam.

VNAT’s Vice Chairman Ha Van Sieu said that Taiwan Tourism Bureau's participation in the Vietnam International Travel Mart - VITM Hanoi 2022 (from 31st March to 3rd April) would be a good opportunity for businesses of both sides to connect and seek cooperation opportunities.
