Visitors laud Vietnam's visa exemption extension

Vietnam will extend visa exemptions for citizens from the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy for the next three years, starting from the beginning of July.

Vietnam – the allure of traditional cultural values and dynamism. The country has been emerging as an attractive destination for foreign tourists worldwide, and 13 million foreigners chose Vietnam as their holiday destination in 2017.

Vietnam’s visa policy has changed a lot to make it easier for tourists to visit. Since 2015, Vietnam piloted visa exemptions for tourists from the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy. Recently, the Government has approved extending the visa exemption for another three years after the visa waiver programme finished at the end of June.
