Vietnam says launch of online visa system is a success

Vietnam’s Immigration Division says the launch of a pilot scheme providing online visa applications has proved a major success. The division of the Ministry of Public Security explained that 490 applications were made in the month after the system went live on 1 February 2017.

The pilot project is scheduled to run for two years and will be evaluated before a final decision is made on whether it will be made permanent. The system allows people from 40 nations including the US and Ireland to pre-apply and pay for tourist visas online.

Evisas are valid for entry at Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi airports plus another 26 official airport, seaport and land border crossings. As well as the 40 designated nations, Vietnam has special visa arrangements in place for citizens of other selected countries.

People from the nine ASEAN bloc nations plus those from Japan, Russia, South Korea and Scandinavian countries are allowed visa free entry to Vietnam. Under a temporary waiver in effect until the end of July, people from the UK and four other European countries also get visa exempt entry.

12GO ASIA says people travelling to Vietnam or any other nation in Asia should check for up to date visa requirements as the rules and regulations change frequently. 12GO ASIA provides online ticketing choices for happy travelling in Southeast Asia.
