Vietnam to loosen visa restrictions

Vietnam is to grant longer period visas to tourists in a bid to boost its sluggish travel industry recovery.

The Government will propose the National Assembly extends the duration of e-visas, Travel Mole reported.

It wants the current 30-day limit applicable to Australians and US visitors to be extended to a maximum of three months.

The Government Office said the proposed extended e-visa would be be valid for single or multiple entries.

This visa is currently for single entries only and available to nationals of 80 countries.

The Government also wants to expand it to more countries.

Vietnam also has visa waivers for a limited number of countries allowing stays of up to 15 days.

Vietnam opened borders a year ago but the tourism industry recovery has been slow, official figures show.
