Vietnam issues 459,000 e-visas since reopening

Since Vietnam reopened its borders and resumed pre-pandemic visa policies in March, it has issued 459,000 e-visas.

An e-visa costs US$25 and takes three working to be issued, the Immigration Department said.

It called on foreigners to visit the official website for e-visa application at evisa.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn.

Foreign passengers arrive at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi, June 2022.

There has been a spate of misleading and false information about visa fees, especially on social media.

The department wants to increase the number of countries whose nationals can apply for e-visas.

Vietnam currently offers 30-day single-entry e-visas to citizens of 80 countries and territories.

Following the Covid outbreak in early 2020, the government suspended e-visas for nearly two years until March this year.

So far this year Vietnam has received only 1.87 million foreign visitors, or 30 percent of its full-year target of five million.
