While Southeast Asia and the rest of the world continues to open up to travellers, you may be considering Vietnam for your next holiday. And once you have arrived, you will be in most cases, required to take a pre-departure Covid PCR test in order to return home, or move on to your next destination. As a foreigner who is not able to read or speak Vietnamese, it may be challenging (and often frustrating) to find a local pre-departure test center that is able to understand all your needs. Hence, we have put together a list of pre-departure PCR test centers for foreigners in Ho Chi Minh and Ha Noi, which are in close proximity to the tourist districts of District 1 and Hoan Kiem lake.

 

Here are the top 5 medical centers and hospitals in Ho Chi Minh and Ha Noi, where you can get an English Pre-departure PCR test for individuals departing Viet Nam. Please note that this list is by no means exhaustive, and for your reference only. We have included the contact information of these test centers, how much it costs to take a PCR test, and the time taken for the PCR test results to be sent to you.
