However, the requirement is to ensure the dual goals of disease prevention and control, as well as socio-economic recovery and development, and a harmonious combination between epidemic prevention and control and tourism and travel activities. .
Focusing on the two main goals above, BR-VT has developed a plan to reopen tourism. Specifically, from October 15, 4 hotels allowed by the Provincial People's Committee to pilot welcome guests include: Melia Ho Tram Resort, Binh Chau Hot Springs, The Grand Ho Tram Resort & Casino (Xuyen Moc district) and Six Senses Con Dao, Con Dao Resort (Con Dao district) will officially open to welcome guests.

Tourism will not be easy, but BR-VT is still a pioneer in opening up the tourism industry, show its determination to step by step revive the "green" economy of the province.

The plan to recover the tourism industry will be based on the epidemic situation in the region, in the province and the progress of vaccine coverage throughout the province. The industry's point of view is to continue to raise vigilance and strictly follow the epidemic prevention instructions from health authorities. Therefore, when implementing tourism recovery activities, tourism and service businesses are forced to strictly comply with regulations on prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic. The Department of Tourism has developed a set of criteria to ensure safety for epidemic prevention and control, which applies to three subjects: accommodation establishments, travel businesses and tourist destinations, and other business and service establishments.

The Department of Tourism will coordinate with localities to guide businesses to sign commitments to implement the set of criteria through representatives of the People's Committees of wards and communes in the area.​ During the implementation process, the Department of Tourism will coordinate with each local government to check to ensure that tourism service providers must pay attention to invest in epidemic prevention, contribute to preserving the health and safety and peace of min for visitors," added Ms. Tran Thi Thu Hien.
Mr. Le Ngoc Khanh, Vice Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee, said that in October, the number of vaccines allocated by the central government to the province will be more. The province has assigned the Department of Health when developing a plan to allocate vaccine resources to localities, it is necessary to pay attention to balance, with more focus on key tourist areas of the province. In addition, the province also requires localities when receiving the allocated vaccines to also include tourism and service workers in the vaccination priority group to prepare conditions for the reopening of the tourism and service industry in the new situation.
