The safety issues would depend on you. If you prepare yourself with medical masks, hand-washing stuff and avoid over-crowded places. I still travel to Phu Quoc this time.

Please relax. There are more people dying of a simple flue. Just wash your hands and eat plenty vitamins and sleep enough.

All diagnosed corona virus cases are in the north of Vietnam,scares are circulating about HCMC-scares only.You will be tested at your port of entry into Vietnam.But face masks and antiseptic gel,cream,wipes etc before your leave your home country.There is a continuing shortage of these items in Vietnam.Wash your hands in clean water at every oppurtunity,do not touch your face or open wounds before washing your hands.It's difficult in Vietnam but try to avoid close contact with anyone who appears ill.You will be safe there,if you take precautions.

I asked the resort and they said that they had two people who were on same flight as someone who tested positive but they did not test positive. Still a bit frightening if you ask me.

Dear all, Phu Quoc is still very safe, warm and cool weather, amazing beaches, everyone will need to declare health information and will be going a temperature sensor at the airport. Please keep visiting. WE ARE SAFE!

We arrived yesterday from HCMC and did not have any temperature scan or health declaration- although the latter is required for international entry. We feel very safe here at the moment and situation will likely improve over the next month because of restrictions on travel from Europe which has been the source of almost all new cases in past 2 weeks. If the virus is brought to the island, I’m guessing the government will be very proactive in shutting things down temporarily as they have done in Ha Long Bay and Hoi An in the past week.

How's Phu Quoc right now? Is it safe to travel? My flight to the island is this Friday but I'm still hesitant on whether or not I should go..

Phu Quoc is very quiet because of lack of tourists. Nothing shut down but check visa restrictions on entry into Vietnam at this point- and the restrictions could change at any moment

Hi Svetlana, so you are able to get to the island? There is a new regulation that they stop receiving tourists from today, so I want to check if you are able to get in and no one stops you. Are shops/restaurants/hotels open?
