HCMC – Air passengers who fail to make online health declarations while they complete check-in procedures online or at kiosks will be denied security screening at airports.
The security screening staff members at airports will have to ask these passengers to contact ground service employees to complete health declarations in line with the prevailing regulations, according to a dispatch sent by the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) to the relevant agencies and units.
CAAV also told local air carriers to work with the country’s airports to support passengers and give them guidelines on how to make online health declarations before they board the aircraft.
Besides, the authority asked the airports to inform foreign airlines and units and organizations active at the airports about the regulation on security screening, Nguoi Lao Dong Online reported.
Following the Transport Ministry’s directive on March 2, the CAAV wrote to the relevant agencies and units proposing that they closely collaborate with the provinces and cities to proactively apply Covid-19 infection prevention and control measures. The provinces and cities were also told to facilitate goods transportation and not to ban markets to make life easy for production and daily activities.
