Vietnam slashes visa fees from 23 November

Vietnam will cut single entry visa fee for visitors from US$45 to US$25, a move that comes amid efforts to reverse a slump in foreign arrivals.

For a multi-entry visa valid for full one month to three months multiple entries, the fee will be US$50, down from the current US$95; kind worth more than 3 months to 6 months and the type of value on 6 months to 1 year stays is 95 USD and 135 USD.

The correction is stipulated at Circular 157/2015/TT-BTC on granting of visa for foreigners entering Viet Nam for tourism and study purposes.

The new circular maintains charges for more than three-month stay visa and raises costs for long-term visa.

Earlier, Viet Nam offered visa exemption for passport holder of United Kingdom (the UK), France, Germany, Spain and Italy within 15 days./.
