More than 270,000 foreigners entered Vietnam on electronic visas, collecting about VND 195 billion since February 2017. Many international tourists appreciate the Vietnamese government's visa policy. Therefore, the Vietnamese government proposed to extend the time to issue Vietnam visa for international visitors. It sounds great, right?

The Vietnamese government's view on E visas

On the morning of November 5, Minister of Public Security To Lam presented a summary report on pilot implementation of electronic visas for foreigners entering Vietnam.

Accordingly, for nearly two years of pilot implementation, from February 2017 to October 2018, the Ministry of Public Security issued 336,932 electronic visas. By October 15, 2018, there were 271,530 foreigners entering Vietnam on electronic visas, mainly via air. The amount collected from the electronic visa fee is VND 195 billion.

In order to ensure that the electronic visa issuance for foreigners entering Vietnam is uninterrupted, it does not affect external relations, the Government proposes to the National Assembly to allow the extension of the pilot implementation period for another 2 years, from the date of 1/2/2019.

The Minister of Public Security affirmed that, in the past two years, no foreigner has been detected on an electronic visa that infringes national security or has complex security issues.

The petition was endorsed by National Assembly deputies and agreed bythe National Defense and Security Committee (under the National Assembly). Deputy Chairman Do Ba Ty said that the content of the pilot extension will be stipulated in the general resolution of the 6th session.
