A joint statement released after PM Oli’s meeting with his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Xuan Phuc said that the direct flight service would bolster bilateral relations in trade, business and investment. It would also boost tourism development, the statement said.

Nepal, a landlocked country in South Asia, welcomed 1.17 million visitors in 2018, up 24.77 percent over the previous year, while Vietnam received 15.6 million visitors, a 20 percent increase.

Vietnam is among countries with the strictest visa policy in Asia. It currently offers visa exemption to 24 countries, compared to 61 by Thailand, 158 by Singapore, 155 by Malaysia and 169 by Indonesia.

The country has tried to relax its entrance formalities with an e-visa policy which is now available to people from 80 countries.
