Mr. Nguyen Van Tuan, the head of Vietnam Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and Vietnam Government totally agreed to continue Vietnam visa waivers for single entry visa for 7 major tourism markets (Russia,Sweden,Norway,Denmark,Finland, theRepublicofKoreaandJapan)
Recently, theVietnamvisa exemption for 7 nations causes many worries for both travel agencies and tourists. For responding, Vietnam Tourism Association informed that they will continue issue Vietnamvisa exemption for the citizens from 7 markets despite the current difficult economic circumstance. This decision may cause the disadvantage for the Vietnam tourism’s competition.
Nowadays, some countries inSoutheast Asiaoffer visa exemption for foreign tourists. For example, citizens from 55 countries are free visa to enter Thailand, and Singapore and Malaysia do not require visa for people from 150 countries and territories. Vietnam Government is studying this matter and do hope to find the best solution soon.
