In order to encourage international tourists to return Vietnam after a long pause due to the pandemic and quickly adapt to the new situation of recovering the tourism industry, gradually bringing the tourism industry back to life, Vietnam Government has issued Resolution No. 32/NQ-CP visa exemption for citizens of 13 countries. This policy is an appropriate solution to bring international tourists to travel to Vietnam and also an opportunity for Vietnam’s tourism to recover.
Subjects exempt from visas are citizens of the following countries: Germany, France, Italy, Spain, UK, Northern Ireland, Russian Federation, Japan, South Korea, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Belarus. Accordingly, citizens of these countries will be exempted from visas for 15 days from the date of entry, regardless of passport type, entry purpose, on the basis of meeting all conditions as prescribed by Vietnam immigration law.
Regarding the application period of the visa exemption policy, the visa exemption on entry to Vietnam for citizens of the above countries will be implemented for a period of 3 years, from March 15th, 2022 to the end of March 14th, 2025. Besides, this policy may be considered for extension in accordance with Vietnamese law.
In addition, to enter Vietnam, visitors need to comply with the requirements on epidemic prevention and control for people on entry. Specifically, visitors must have a negative test result for SARS-CoV-2, must make a medical declaration before entry and monitor their health and apply Covid-19 prevention measures.
Therefore, it can be seen that Vietnam has created favorable conditions for tourism to gradually approach international tourists in an effective and safe manner.
