This is the major content of Resolution No. 99/NQ-CP, which was issued by the Government on December 29 with a view to promoting the country’s tourism industry, targeting visitors from these potential markets.
Nationals from these seven countries will be allowed to stay in Vietnam for at most 15 days, regardless of passport types and entry purposes, as long as they meet conditions for visa exemption prescribed by Vietnam’s law.
The visa waiver policy will last for five years, from January 1, 2015, to December 31, 2019, and may be considered for extension.-
