VOV.VN -The Tourism Advisory Board (TAB) has put forward a proposal to the Vietnamese Government to resume the unilateral visa exemption for tourists from the UK, Germany, Italy, France and Spain as part of the reopening of the international tourism, a move which is scheduled to start from March 15.
As of June 30, 2021, those five European countries, all of which are key markets for the nation, saw visa exemptions expire.
The agency has therefore proposed extending the visa waiver by up to three years for citizens from the five European countries amid the nation fully reopening international tourism starting from March 15.
Furthermore, other countries, including the Republic of Korea, Japan, Russia, and some Nordic countries, will see visa exemptions expire on December 30 this year.
The TAB has suggested that the unilateral visa exemption policy with the Republic of Korea, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Belarus be resumed from January 1, 2023.
