How Will the Validity of Visa Change?
As a US citizen, travellers or businessmen currently can stay in Vietnam for 30 to 90 days, with single or multiple entries. This means that after 3 months in Vietnam, Americans have to come back their home country or come to Vietnam Immigration Agent to extend their visas.
Now, with the effort to facilitate the US tourists and boost the foreign trade and commercial, Vietnam Government is working to come to a lawmaker that allow extending the validity of visa for US people from 3 months to 1 year. Vietnamese citizens who enter the US for business or travel purpose are now allowed a 1-year visa, and Vietnam needs to do the same on the basis of reciprocity.
The US citizens come to Vietnam can have longer Vietnam trips, and the American business community will repeatedly push for the new term to be prolonged. In addition, Vietnam has recently offered visa waivers to five European countries for 15 days including England, France, Germany, Spain, and Italia. Vietnam Government has also announced plans to let overseas Vietnamese enter freely without a visa.
