Hanoi (VNA) - The Government has recently issued a resolution on exempting visa for flight crew members of foreign airlines operating in Vietnam.

The resolution indicated that the Government agreed with the visa exemption policy for flight crew of foreign airlines operating in Vietnam on the basic principle of reciprocity.

Accordingly, the visa exemption will be applied to all nationalities of crew members of foreign airlines operating in Vietnam on international flights to and from Vietnam which are conducted by those airlines; crew members of foreign airlines operating in Vietnam who come to Vietnam on commercial flights or other transportation means to perform flight duties on flights departing from Vietnam; and crew members of foreign airlines operating in Vietnam who come to Vietnam on those airlines’ flights as crew members and then leave the country on commercial flights or other transportation means as passengers.

Crew members under the resolution will be able to enter the country without visa and reside temporarily and travel freely on Vietnam’s territory, except for restricted areas regulated in Vietnamese laws, until they take the next ordinary flights.

When entering or leaving the country, the visa-exempted flight crew members must show passports which are valid for at least six months, valid crew member identification cards, and documents affirmed by the airlines that indicate their flight duties.-VNA
