Vietnam has lifted the 14-day quarantine for foreign experts, investors, managers, and diplomats entering the country for less than 14 days.

But guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health on Tuesday require them to continue complying with all other requirements like wearing a mask and refraining from shaking hands to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
