According to the new regulations, those who are entitled to duty-free goods are people who leave the country, passengers in transit and passengers on international flights of Vietnamese carriers and joint ventures.

Those allowed to also buy duty-free goods are agencies, organizations and individuals that enjoy diplomatic privileges and immunities, and crews working for international oceangoing vessels, including Vietnamese and foreign nationals.
