Available to be downloaded in both Vietnamese and English from 10:10 AM on October 10 via http://vietnamtourism.gov.vn/live, the app is designed to make it easier for visitors to check out how safe destinations are and feel more secure about their trip.
The app will allow users to use a digital map containing information on restaurants, hotels, apartments, entertainment places, transport providers, hospitals and pharmacies of which the owners and managers have submitted their safety status to the authorised agencies.
The visitors can look up information about the current COVID-19 situation in the locality as well as details about infection cases and the number of recovered patients there.
Tourists are free to send their feedback and comments on the service quality of places they visited as well as whether places met the safety standards which they laid out on the app.
Active promotion programmes and discounts are also updated on the app to help tourists enjoy their stay in Vietnam even more.
