5:55:25 PM | 3/10/2022

Travellers from Vietnam can look forward to travelling with Emirates for their long-awaited international holidays and business trips and enjoying the convenience of returning home hassle-free from 13 March. With the resumption of Emirates’ commercial flights, travellers heading to Europe and other destinations and returning to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, will no longer be required to obtain special government approval for entry and can also self-quarantine at home.

The desire to travel has never been stronger, and as travellers from Vietnam start planning their international trips once again after a two-year gap, Emirates is ready to meet demand by offering three flights a week from and to Hanoi and two weekly fights on the Ho Chi Minh City route.

Upon arrival back into Vietnam, passengers of all nationalities can self-quarantine for three days if fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19. A seven-day self-quarantine is required for passengers who are not fully vaccinated. For more details on entry requirements to Vietnam, customers can check the travel requirements page on emirates.com. Customers are urged to check the applicable eligibility requirements prior to booking.

Emirates flights to both points will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a two-class configuration. The wide-body aircraft operating flights EK392/393 and EK394/395 will offer the spaciousness and comfort of 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 382 seats in Economy Class. Tickets can be booked from today on emirates.com, the Emirates App, or via both online and offline travel agents.

Emirates has safely restarted operations to more than 120 destinations within its extensive global network, via Dubai, the hub of Emirates. Passengers flying from Vietnam with the airline have the chance to discover the world. Those planning a stopover will have the chance to squeeze in visits to Dubai Expo which ends on 31 March. As Premier Partner and Official Airline of Expo 2020 Dubai travellers on Emirates will be able to redeem a complimentary Season Pass with every ticket booked with the airline. The Emirates Season pass allows visitors to go to the must-see event, Expo 2020 Dubai, as many times as they wish.
