The National Assembly Standing Committee has announced Vietnam eVisa new policies to accommodate the needs of international travelers. This move aims to facilitate those who wish to enter Vietnam for study, market research, and investment promotion purposes. 

This change will take effect for those submitting their Vietnam e-Visa application on or after August 15, 2023. However, it will not apply to those who have already had their eVisa for Vietnam issued or have submitted their Vietnam eVisa application before August 15, 2023. Now, let’s dive into the changes.

Vietnam eVisa Exemption Policy Updates

Visa-free stays of 45 days are extended to nationals of these countries, without consideration of passport type or entry purpose: Germany, France, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, Russia, Japan, South Korea, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Belarus.

Vietnam eVisa grants a validity of up to 90 days

On the same day, Vietnam approved an extension of the validity period for e-visas. Instead of the current 30-day, single-entry-only option, e-visas will now be valid for up to 90 days and allow for both single and multiple entries. 

This means that within the 90-day validity period, eVisa holders can enter and exit Vietnam as many times as they wish without having to go through any additional eVisa issuance procedures.
