Vietnam overhauls visa system to boost tourism

Vietnam is implementing significant changes to its visa system starting August 15, allowing e-visa holders multiple entries and exits within 90 days, according to a National Assembly approval. The reform, a major extension from the previous 30-day limit, is set to invigorate the country's tourism and hospitality sectors. Additionally, citizens from countries that are exempt from visa requirements can now stay for 45 days, a jump from the previous 15-day limit. Industry insiders believe that these changes will significantly boost Vietnam's competitiveness in tourism. The changes also remove the necessity for tourists on popular circuits, like Vietnam-Cambodia-Laos, to apply for a new visa to reenter the country. This extended visa policy has been well received, with hopes that it will increase tourist influx and attract more investors to Vietnam.
