This country in Southeast Asia is known for its stunning landscapes, sandy beaches, and vibrant cities that have attracted tourists from all over the world for decades. However, the country's visa policy has been a point of criticism for years, with its tourist visa limit being just 30 days. Fortunately, the country is about to increase its tourist visa limit up to three months to boost tourism, which has been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The proposed revamped e-Visa will be valid for single or multiple entries and will be available to nationals of 80 countries, including Americans, Australians, and Brits. The new visa policy will allow tourists to stay longer and explore the country's natural beauty, stunning landscapes, vibrant cities, and rich cultural heritage.
Vietnam's new visa policy is expected to be a game-changer for the country's tourism industry, which was one of the hardest-hit sectors due to the pandemic. The Vietnamese government has been taking several measures to revive its tourism industry, including offering financial incentives to airlines, travel agencies, and hotels. Additionally, the government has launched several promotional campaigns highlighting the country's natural beauty, rich cultural heritage, and warm hospitality.
The new visa policy is part of Vietnam's efforts to achieve its target of welcoming eight million tourists in 2023. With the removal of all health regulations, Vietnam is ready to attract more tourists, and to achieve this, it's essential that they revise their visa policy.
It's expected to attract more tourists from the United States, Canada, and Europe. Currently, tourists from these countries need to apply for an e-Visa before traveling to Vietnam, which is valid for 30 days. However, the new visa policy will enable them to stay in the country for up to three months, which will give them more time to explore Vietnam's attractions.
The e-Visa application process is simple and can be done online, where tourists need to fill in an online application form and pay a visa fee of USD $25. The visa processing time is usually around three days, and tourists can receive their e-Visa via email. With the new visa policy, tourists will be able to extend their stay up to three months and experience Vietnam's unique culture and traditions.
This new visa policy is a positive development for Vietnam's tourism industry. The increased visa limit will enable tourists to stay longer and explore its diverse attractions. With the right strategies and policies, Vietnam can emerge as a leading tourist destination in Southeast Asia.
