The event, held both in person and via videoconference, gathered more than 200 representatives from foreign diplomatic missions, consular offices and representative offices of international organisations in the country.

Chairing the meeting, Deputy Foreign Minister To Anh Dung said it was an occasion for foreign representative agencies to raise opinions and proposals to help the ministry perfect the coordination mechanism.

In the first session, participants were informed about the latest changes to the country’s policies and laws, including revisions relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic such as those on the exit, entry, and residence by foreigners, vaccine passports, and COVID-19 vaccination for foreigners.

In the second session, the foreign representatives gave opinions on the coordination in consular affairs. They paid attention to the country’s upcoming policy on entry and post-entry quarantine for foreigners and the recognition of vaccine passports to facilitate international travel.

Based on these opinions, the Foreign Ministry will continue perfecting the mechanism for boosting cooperation among the ministry, relevant agencies, and foreign representative bodies in Viet Nam so as to further intensify Viet Nam’s relations, especially in consular affairs, with other countries and territories.
