Good news for tourists heading to Vietnam! According to recent reports, the National Assembly of Vietnam has passed a government recommendation to increase the duration of electronic visas for foreign visitors. Beginning August 1, the validity of approved e-visas will be extended from 30 days to 90 days.
The decision will bring significant relief to global travellers visiting Vietnam, as the country has become an increasingly popular tourist destination in recent times.

At present, Indian travellers are granted electronic tourist visas for a single entry into Vietnam that allow them a stay of only 30 days. However, the implementation of a new scheme will enable visitors to extend their stay there for a longer duration.
The recent visa reforms will offer tourists greater opportunities to explore various regions of Vietnam. The current visa fee stands at USD 25, and the processing time is approximately 3–4 days.
