Vietnam Launches Universal E-Visa Program, Simplifying Travel Procedures for All Visitors

As of August 15, 2023, Vietnam has implemented an electronic visa (e-visa) system to welcome visitors from all nationalities. This new system is hoped to revive the country's tourism and allied sectors, which have been challenged by bureaucratic regulations since the onset of the pandemic. Additionally, citizens from select countries have been granted visa exemption, allowing them to explore Vietnam for up to 45 days.

This reform is part of Resolution No. 127/NQ-CP, dated August 14, 2023, and represents a major expansion of the e-visa program, which previously only applied to 80 exempted nations. The primary goal of this move is to promote tourism and make Vietnam a more attractive destination for global travelers.



Of particular importance is the 90-day permissible stay for all e-visa holders. This extension is intended to attract more visitors from countries like Japan, South Korea, and Western Europe, who previously had a 15-day visa-free period. By providing more opportunities for extended visits, Vietnam hopes to generate more tourism revenue and strengthen cultural exchange.

The e-visa system is also encompassing Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, in addition to 13 airports and 16 land border gates. This will make it easier and more efficient for business travelers to enter the country and take advantage of the extended visa duration.

This policy reform is designed to encourage tourism, attract investments, and facilitate the entry of skilled professionals and experts. The introduction of multiple-entry visas will also help streamline administrative processes for both the Vietnamese government and visa applicants.
