Methods of testing and time taken for test results differ on the testing centre. For more information and details about what the test can be used for (e.g. domestical or international travel), please contact the hospitals. For the local government hospitals, you might want to have a Vietnamese speaker to help you. If not, check out our list of Vietnamese survival phrases for lockdown and beyond, which includes helpful phrases that you can use for your visit to the hospital.

If you are booking a test for international flights from Vietnam, we suggest the following:

  • Confirm that your airlines accept test results from your chosen hospital/ clinic
  • Confirm whether you need a RT-PCR test
  • Check that the hospital/ clinic will provide results in both Vietnamese and English
  • Request for at least 3 hardcopies of the results

Getting to the Testing Centres 

If you have your own mode of transport, you are generally allowed to use it to get there. Public transportation is currently not running in Ho Chi Minh City. There might be police roadblocks on the way, so go prepared with the necessary documents.

Taxis are still operating; however, they can only be booked 30 minutes before departure. Both companies only have Vietnamese speaking phone operators. You will also have to call for another taxi when the appointment is over.

Private car hires can be booked in advance and they communicate in English. They also do round trips; the driver will wait for you and take you home. This is the most convenient option, but comes with a heftier price tag.

Testing is becoming a regular part of our lives as we continue our fight against the virus outbreak and wait for the vaccine. If you are a close contact with someone who has the COVID-19 virus or you show top symptoms, do contact the Vietnamese government officials and seek treatment. Here's wishing you good health and good luck getting your RT-PRC test or Rapid Antigen test.
