The Foundation for e-Visa Expansion in Vietnam

The impetus for this remarkable change comes from Resolution No. 127/NQ-CP, enacted on August 14, 2023. This resolution represents a monumental leap forward, extending e-visa accessibility to citizens from all corners of the world, marking a substantial departure from the previous list of 80 exempted nations. At the heart of this strategic move lies the ambition to fortify tourism and position Vietnam as a more accessible and enticing destination for global adventurers.

Efficiency Redefined

This transformative visa policy reform extends its reach beyond major aviation hubs, such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. With a network of 13 airports, spanning Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, and an additional 16 land border gates facilitating e-visas, the journey to Vietnam promises to be streamlined and seamlessly efficient. This optimized environment is ideal for conducting business activities and exploring the nation's diverse offerings.

Attracting High-Quality Talent, Business Travelers, and Tourists

Vietnam's strategic shift aims at enhancing tourism and attracting international investments. The extension of the e-visa validity period holds significance for both business travellers and tourists, providing them with ample time to immerse themselves in Vietnam's rich culture and opportunities.

Moreover, this adjustment will facilitate the entry of skilled professionals and experts, making substantial contributions to Vietnam's economic growth. In a further boon, the National Assembly has also approved the introduction of multiple-entry visas, streamlining administrative processes and resulting in significant time and cost savings for both the Vietnamese government and visa applicants.

In the words of Le Tan Toi, Chairperson of the National Assembly Committee for Defense and Security, "A three-month e-visa will effectively address the requirements of foreign visitors seeking to extend their stay for the purpose of exploring potential investment prospects."
