Vietnam Reducing Visa Fees

Vietnam Reducing Visa Fees


Good news for those planning a trip to Vietnam as it has been announced that they will be cutting visa fees for a number of international passport holders and overseas Vietnamese next month.

From November 23rd Vietnam will be reducing the cost of many of their visa fees. The single entry visa will be reduced to $25 from the current $45, and multiple entry visas valid for less than three months will be lowered from $95 to $50.

For multi-entry visas valid for 3 to 6 months the cost will remain at $95, and $135 for those valid between 6 months to a year. Visas valid for between one and two years will stay at $145, and those from two to five years at $155.

Foreigners who enter Vietnam and choose to continue on to Laos and Cambodia before returning to Vietnam for onward travel will now be charged just $5 instead of the $45 currently being charged.

Vietnam already offers a one-sided free-visa policy to several countries, including Japan, South Korea, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Russia, and Belarus. They also have a visa-free policy with nine Southeast Asian countries, including Brunei, Myanmar, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, and the Philippines.

Vietnam began waiving fees for a selection of European countries back in July, including Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the UK.
