As of Monday, March 10, 2020, Vietnam has temporarily suspended visa waiver for citizens from United Kingdom and 8 European countries including Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Germany, France and Spain.
In the latest regulation officially released this morning Mar 11, 2020, the Government said not only the visa waiver but the visa picked up at the port of entry is also suspended.
Thus, in addition to 5 first countries whose the new type of virus broke out since the year start, so far the Government had stopped issuing visa at arrival port for totally 14 countries, namely, China mainland, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Iran, United Kingdom, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Germany, France and Spain.
Though the visa picked up at the arrival port is suspended, applicants from the mentioned countries might still apply for regular visa with the local Embassy/Consulate of Vietnam if he/she pass the requirements set by the organization.
The move is considered the big effort of the Government to retain the spread of the epidemic and gradually take control over the concerns. There might be some more amendments to the law of immigration during the hard time that possibly hit the tourism industry of the country; however, they are and continue to prove how far the Government can go to protect its people and visitors from the epidemic.
