Ho Chi Minh City Department of Tourism collaborates with Thu Duc City and districts to mobilize accommodation facilities to register as quarantine hotels, and coordinated with Traveloka to implement an online quarantine hotel booking system for people.
As of July 23, the Department of Tourism has coordinated with the Department of Health to advise and propose to the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City to establish paid centralized quarantine sites for people entering Vietnam at 72 hotels, with 5,564 rooms. Currently, these facilities also accept high-risk people (F1) to quarantine.
For accommodation facilities serving as centralized quarantine areas for people at high risk of Covid-19 (F1), as of July 23, 395 hotels have been mobilized to register as quarantine facilities for F1 with a total of 13,426 rooms. Of which, 117 hotels are eligible to be put into use. The rest of the hotels are under appraisal.
For accommodation facilities registered to serve the frontline medical team in the prevention and control of the Covid-19, so far, there are 164 hotels with 4,541 rooms ready to serve doctors and medical staff with the maximum support price.
In addition, the Department of Tourism has also coordinated with Traveloka Vietnam to implement an online quarantine hotel booking system on Traveloka’s website and mobile application, allowing people to search for information and choose quarantine hotels. The system is in the process of testing and is expected to be available for booking from August 1.
In order to encourage hotels to participate in this program, hotel users can post information and enjoy services for free in the first 3 months and receive other incentives in the following months.
The Department of Tourism also updated the list and information of hotels registering as quarantine facilities for people at high risk of Covid-19 at the Department’s website.
