The Embassy in Hanoi and Consulate General in HCMC of the Kingdom of the Netherlands on March 20th announce:
The Embassy in Hanoi and Consulate General in HCMC of the Kingdom of the Netherlands advice all Dutch tourists and other non-essential visitors in Vietnam to leave Vietnam as quickly as possible.
The number of commercial flights to travel from or via Vietnam to the Netherlands is increasingly rapidly declining.
As of next week, the number of commercial flights from Vietnam will be very minimal or not available at all. When you are in Vietnam now or in transit, you are advised to access the information channels (website, hotlines of desks at airports) of your airline or travel company as soon as possible, so you can leave as quickly as possible.
ATMs still work in Vietnam. You can also transfer money via WesternUnion.
We would be grateful if you could spread the word to others who might not be up to date yet.
We advise all Dutch people who are still in Vietnam to register themselves, so we can reach all Dutch people in case of emergency https://informatieservice.nederlandwereldwijd.nl/
The travel advice can be found in the Travel app (in Dutch: Reisapp van Buitenlandse Zaken) or here: https://www.nederlandwereldwijd.nl/…/viet…/reizen/reisadvies
