Vietnam is considering extending the 30-day e-visa to help boost Vietnam tourism.

The Ministry of Public Security proposed extending the duration to up to 90 days.

The e-visa would allow multiple entries, according to a draft amendment.

Vietnam’s currently offers a single-entry 30-day e-visa for nationals of 80 countries and territories.

It includes major markets like the US and Australia.

The ministry also wants the current visa exemption of 15 days doubled to 30 days.

This is valid for some European countries, japan and Korea among others.

Vietnam tourism recovery has been sluggish n part because of the visa policy.

Last week Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh said the visa policy would be overhauled, allowing more countries to use the visa waiver.

Vietnam welcomed only 3.6 million foreign tourists last year, which is just 20% of 2019 levels

It is targeting eight million tourist arrivals in 2023.
