Cập nhật: 26/09/2023
VOV.VN - Citizens of 13 countries will be allowed to enter Vietnam without visas and enjoy 45 days of temporary residence as opposed to 15 days as previously, according to a Government resolution issued on August 14.
The resolution is due to take effect as of August 15, 2023.
The new policy will apply to citizens of Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, Russia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Belarus, regardless of type of passports or purpose of entry, provided they meet all entry conditions as prescribed by Vietnamese law.
The National Assembly in its June 2023 session approved legislation amending and supplementing a number of articles of the law on exit and entry of Vietnamese citizens and the law on entry, exit, transit and residence of foreigners in Vietnam.
Accordingly, the temporary stay period for citizens of countries subject to unilateral visa exemption offered by Vietnam will be extended to 45 days, an increase of 30 days compared to the time limit specified in the 2014 law on entry, exit, transit and residence of foreigners in Vietnam in 2014.
Also under the new bill which is due to take effect from August 15, Vietnam will allow foreigners to extend their e-visas validity to 90 days, as opposed to the current period of 30 days.
During their approved duration, foreigners will be able to enter and exit the nation multiple times, without having to go through new visa procedures.
