According to VnExpress, there will be 13 airports, 16 land border crossings, and 13 sea border crossings where foreigners are allowed to enter and exit by e-visa. The 13 airports are Noi Bai, Tan Son Nhat, Cam Ranh, Da Nang, Cat Bi, Can Tho, Phu Quoc, Phu Bai, Van Don, Tho Xuan, Dong Hoi, Phu Cat, and Lien Khuong.

The Vietnamese government also decided to lengthen the temporary stay period from 15 to 45 days for citizens of 13 countries who are eligible for visa exemptions to Vietnam. These countries are: Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Russia, Japan, Korea, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Belarus. Citizens of these countries are allowed to stay for 45 days in Vietnam from the time of entry, regardless of passport type and entry purpose.

In June, the National Assembly of Vietnam passed a law amending and supplementing a number of articles of the law governing the exit and entry of Vietnamese citizens and the law on entry, exit, transit, and residence of foreigners in Vietnam, including increasing the e-visa duration from 30 to 90 days and allowing visitors to enter multiple times.
