Vietnam to resume issuing e-visas by July 1

Vietnam will resume issuing e-visas for citizens from 80 countries starting July 1, according to a government resolution. Eligible countries include EU member nations, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China, South Korea, Japan and India. A full list is available here.

It is, however, understood that all those arriving from abroad will be tested for the coronavirus and quarantined for 14 days.

Holders of e-visas can enter the country through one of the eight international airports: Hanoi’s Noi Bai Airport, Hai Phong’s Cat Bi Airport, Da Nang Airport, Thua Thien-Hue Province’s Phu Bai Airport, Cam Ranh Airport, Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat Airport, Can Tho Airport and Phu Quoc Airport. They are also allowed to enter the country via 29 land and sea borders.

The new government resolution was issued on May 25 and the amended immigration law will take effect on July 1.

Tourism experts see the move as an initial step showing that Vietnam is planning to open up again. To push tourism, though, there has to be resumption of flight routes as well, apart from other things. Visitors also need to make sure that they will be able to return to their country or to go to wherever they want to continue their journey without troubles.

Vietnam has suspended visa issuance to all foreigners starting March 18 and banned all foreign nationals from entering the country starting March 22 as it acted to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.
