New e-visa policy facilitates group, MICE tours

Vietnam’s new e-visa policy, which took effect from August 15, has facilitated group and MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and events) tours, insiders have said.

Under the law, the e-visa validity period is extended to 90 days from 30 days. Foreigners can enter and exit Vietnam unlimited times and without having to apply for new visas. The law also permits citizens of the countries entitled to Vietnam’s unilateral visa exemption to be granted a temporary residence period of 45 days, instead of 15 days like in the past, and have visa granting and temporary residence extensions considered in line with regulations.

Notably, the Japanese Embassy in Hanoi and Consulate General in HCM City have recently announced single-entry e-visas for groups of Vietnamese tourists for short-term stays of up to 15 days from November.

Several programmes have been carried out to welcome international arrivals and introduce new tourism products to attract new markets such as Islamic countries and meeting, incentive and conference (MICE) tourist market, among others.
Hanoi authorities have also announced several plans to organise numerous events to lure visitors in the coming time, such an autumn festival, a traditional costume festival, a Hanoi gift festival, and night tourism products
