The Hanoi People’s Committee has permitted eight hotels to quarantine foreigners when they enter Vietnam in order to prevent COVID-19 spread.

Those being quarantined at these hotels will have to pay their own costs, according to a post on Monday on the verified Facebook account of the Vietnamese government.

The eight include:

1. Hoa Binh Hotel at 27 Ly Thuong Kiet Street, Hang Bai Ward, Hoan Kiem District.

2. InterContinental Westlake Hanoi at 5 Tu Hoa Street, Quang An Ward, Tay Ho District.

3. Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi at 15 Ngo Quyen Street, Hoan Kiem District.

4. Muong Thanh Grand Xa La Hotel at 66 Phuc La, Xa La Urban Area, Ha Dong District.

5. Binh An 3 Hotel in Lam Nghiep Hamlet, Minh Phu Commune, Soc Son District.

6. Crowne Plaza West Hanoi at 36 Le Duc Tho Street, My Dinh 2 Ward, Nam Tu Liem District.

7. Binh An 1 Hotel in Binh An Hamlet, Trung Gia Commune, Soc Son District.

8. Wyndham Garden Hanoi at HH01 To Huu Street, Van Phuc Ward, Ha Dong District.

Since September 1, arrivals to Vietnam have had to pay for the cost of their mandatory 14-day quarantine, the government said.

Stays at collective quarantine centers in the Southeast Asian nation had been free of charge, but people could opt to spend their quarantine at local hotels for a fee.

Those foreigners who are allowed to enter Vietnam and who will stay in the country for less than 14 days will not be subject to collective quarantine but they have to strictly adhere to COVID-19 prevention rules.

Vietnam began denying entry to foreign nationals on March 22 but the government allows foreign experts, skilled workers, investors, and diplomats to enter the country on a case-by-case basis.

The nation has suspended international flights since March 25 to slow the spread of COVID-19. 

Since then, charter flights to the country have only been arranged to bring in experts, skilled workers, and diplomats, and to repatriate Vietnamese citizens stranded in other nations and territories due to the pandemic.

Vietnam has reported zero local coronavirus infections for 12 consecutive days, with the tally reaching 1,063, recoveries 926, and deaths 35.
