Draft circular raising visa fees into Vietnam

April 06, 2015 0 COMMENT

Foreigners wanting to stay in Vietnam for more than three months will face a rise in visa fees.

Draft circular raising visa fees into Vietnam

According to the draft circular of the Ministry of Finance (MoF) on the regulations on collection, payment, management and usage of fees for visas and passports into Vietnam, fees for obtaining a multiple-entry visa into the country will be strongly increased:

Previous to the change, the fees were $65 for a visa of less than one month, $95 for less than six months, and $135 for six months upwards.

Meanwhile, a single-entry visa for tourists remains unchanged, at $45 under the draft circular.

When VIR asked MoF’s Deputy Minister Vu Thi Mai at last week’s government press conference about the rise in fees for multiple-entry visas, she refused to comment on the issue.

Nguyen Van Tuan, director of a locally-owned tourist company in Hanoi, told VIR that: “I suggest that single-entry visa fees for tourists not be raised, though the existing fee level of $45 remains unchanged in the draft circular. If it was raised, local tourism industry would be badly affected as the number of foreign tourists would decrease.”
