HANOI -- Vietnam eased reentry procedures for foreign workers and overseas Vietnamese, taking crucial steps to coexist with coronavirus before Tet, the Lunar New Year holidays starting on Saturday.

The government relaxed procedures on Jan. 18. Expatriates and their families with residence cards or visas no longer need approval from immigration authorities to reenter the country. Although they remain subject to COVID-19 protocols, those fully vaccinated can quarantine at their own residence for three days.
