• Visa. U.S. citizens are required to obtain a visa before traveling into Vietnam. Once you have been confirmed to join our Việt-Nam Culinary Escapade, Open Kitchen will help you obtain your visa to enter Vietnam. Additionally, a valid U.S. passport with at least six months of validity remaining beyond the date of your arrival is required.
  • Mandatory COVID testing. All travelers over the age of two are required to have a negative COVID-19 test upon entering Vietnam. Options are an RT-PCR/RT-LAMP test administered within the previous 72 hours or a rapid test taken within 24 hours of departure.
  • Travel insurance. The Vietnamese Government is requiring each traveler to carry medical or travel insurance that specifically covers treatment costs associated with COVID-19 with a minimum liability of $10,000.
  • Complete health declaration and monitor health. Before arriving to Vietnam, all travelers must fill out a health declaration. You will need to download a COVID-related app on a mobile smartphone (Apple/Google Play) to self-monitor for 10 days upon arrival. This information must be presented to enter all Vietnamese establishments.
  • Mask. Face masks are required in public spaces, enclosed environments, and on public transport.
