The programme was created in conjunction with the ASEAN-Republic of Korea Commemorative Summit, an event to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ASEAN-RoK dialogue partnership, which is slated for Nov. 25-26 in Busan.

The programme is only valid for three month period visit visas. Visa applicants are not required to pay the 20 USD admission fee, however they will still need to pay 390,000 VND for administration fee.

In the first eight months of 2019, the RoK hosted about 370,000 Vietnamese visitors, up 25.7 percent from the same period last year./.
