TMG – Vietnam’s National Assembly approved on Saturday (June 24) to extend the validity of tourist e-visas from 30 to 90 days and allow visitors multiple entries.
According to the amendments taking effect on August 15, visa-free stays will also be tripled to 45 days for visitors from certain countries. Nationals of some Western European countries, Japan and South Korea, are now permitted to visit without a visa for 15 days.
Vietnamese officials and tourism experts believe a three-month e-visa will meet foreign visitors’ demand to stay longer to explore investment opportunities. Meanwhile, issuing multiple-entry visas would reduce the administrative burden and save time and money.
Vietnam currently offers e-visas to citizens of 80 countries and territories. It waives visas for nationals of 25 countries, primarily for between 15-30 days, a policy considered less generous than other countries in its neighborhood. In the first five months of this year, Vietnam received 4.6 million foreign visitors, more than half of the year’syear’s target of eight million but still only 63% of pre-pandemic levels.
