COVID-19 safety guidelines

RMIT Vietnam has some safety measures to keep our students, staff and campuses safe, and you're an important part of it.   

RMIT Vietnam can only open to students who are fully vaccinated or have recovered completely from COVID-19. 

  • Full vaccination: you are fully vaccinated after 14 days of getting the second dose in a 2-dose vaccine, such as the AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine 

  • Full recovery: you recovered from COVID-19 in the last three months, as confirmed by the local authorities (with verification)  

Access campus for the first time:   

  • When you visit RMIT campuses for the first time, please prepare to provide proof of your COVID-19 recovery or vaccination status to the security guards for review. It includes the PC-Covid app, digital documents or photos/scans of original certificates are accepted. Security guards will validate your vaccination status by providing a sticker for you to stick on your RMIT student ID card.  

  • After that, you no longer need to show the PC-Covid app and you will be required to show Security your RMIT student ID card with the validated sticker.  

  • If you lose your sticker, you can show your PC-Covid app to Security who can provide you with a replacement sticker.  

  • Please note that when you visit Hanoi and Danang campus, you will still need to complete the relevant building management check-in requirements. 

While you're on campus, please always wear your mask and keep your personal hygiene, following RMIT's COVIDSafe practices on campus

Stay updated 

In the evolving situation, information may change quickly. We will keep you updated with any changes via your RMIT mailbox and on the RMIT website at Alert: Coronavirus (COVID-19)
