The Vietnamese government is set to extend the validity of e-visas from 30 days to 90 days in a bid to boost tourism and improve entry and exit procedures. The decision was made during a lawmaking session in Hanoi on Monday, where Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh stressed the importance of facilitating easier travel for foreign visitors and Vietnamese citizens alike.

Under the proposed changes, e-visas (be raised the validity of e-visas to 90 days from the current 30 days)  will be granted to citizens of all countries and territories, with the list of eligible nations to be determined by the government. The extended e-visa will allow for both single and multiple entries into the country, providing greater flexibility for travelers.

In addition, the government plans to increase the duration of temporary residence at the border gate for those entering the country under the visa exemption categories. The current allowance of 15 days will be extended to 45 days, allowing travelers more time to explore the country without having to apply for a visa.

The proposal to extend the validity of e-visas and ease entry and exit procedures will be submitted to the National Assembly in May 2023 for inclusion in the 2023 Law and Ordinance Development Programme.

Founder & Photography Guide

Specialties: Culture, landscape, portrait, hiking, active and adventurous tour

Besides my unlimited passion for traveling, a professional tour guide for over a decade, I have been taking photographs since sitting at Hanoi of the University of Culture in the early 2000s. Photography started as a hobby but it was seriously taken due to my work relations and my significant passion for the beauty of our world, especially in Southeast Asian parts such as Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar.

Within a few years of taking photographs, my works began to be recognized by many reliable international publications such as AFAR Travel, The Times, and The Daily Telegraph newspaper. In addition, I continuously add to my growing profile by winning numerous major awards: 3rd Position of The Independent Photographer 2018, 1st Position of Amateur Photographer of the year 2018, Grand Prize Winner of the AFAR Travel Photography 2019, and a Gold Award of San Francisco Bay International Photography 2020.

I photograph a wide variety of subjects, from travel to landscapes to street scenes. I enjoy documenting the East’s rich cultural heritage and its land soaked in glorious sunrise or sunset light in remote and secluded spots. And, I am very happy to share my knowledge and experience with you. You can visit Luminousvietnamtour to explore tour!
