Accordingly, holders of passports of the U.K, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Norway, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, and Belarus will be allowed to visit Vietnam for up to 15 days without a visa regardless of passport type and entry purpose.

Live fully in Vietnam
Live fully in Vietnam is a campaign launched by Vietnam Tourism Board to welcome international tourists back to Vietnam after more than 2 years of its border closure.

Before the pandemic, Vietnam has offered unilateral visa exemption policy for these 13 countries, the country’s major tourism markets. The country also granted e-visas to citizens of 88 countries and territories that allowed them to apply for visas online for a 30-day, single-entry visa.

Vietnam closed inbound tourism and halted granting visas for foreign tourists since March 2020.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism had many times called for the government to revive the visa policy like before the pandemic.

Vietnam has received over 10,000 foreign arrivals since November last year as the country partially reopened international tourism.

The country has announced to lift most of travel restrictions from March 15, when foreign tourists would be allowed to visit the country without booking tour packages.
