Duty-free store reopens in Tan Son Nhat Airport

The duty-free store in Tan Son Nhat International Airport has officially reopened. Customers entering Vietnam through international airports are eligible to purchase items duty-free. 

Each person can purchase a 1.5 liter bottle of wine above 22 percent or two-liter bottles under 22 percent and 400 cigarettes.  Travelers can buy other items with total cost below VND5 million (US$237.50).

The reopening of the store was met with high demand from consumers traveling in and out of the country.  It will also be a critical source of income and competition for the airport. 

Currently it only has alcohol products, cigarettes and confectionaries.  The store is hoping to expand its stock to sell perfumes and cosmetics.
