Diplomatic representative agencies, UN organisations or agencies in Vietnam, and organisations and businesses that send Vietnamese citizens to work and study abroad are responsible for preparing specific lists to send to the standing agency of the MoH’s National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control or standing agencies of the Steering Committees for COVID-19 Prevention and Control in provinces and cities nationwide, for consideration and instruction.

Those providing testing services are responsible for performing testing and issuing certificates, as appropriate, to individuals and organisations.

They must also carry out quarantining measures for those testing positive and report to authorised agencies implementing preventive measures in line with regulations.
