Vietnam cuts visa fees to boost tourism

Single-entry visas to cost US$25 instead of $45
Foreigners visiting Vietnam can expect much lower entry fees from November 23, according to a circular from the nation’s Ministry of Finance, TTG Asia reports.
Single-entry visas will cost US$25 instead of the current $45, while fees for multiple-entry visas with validity of less than three months will cost $50 instead of $95.
Prices for multiple-entry visas valid for three to six months and for six months to a year will remain the same, costing $95 and $135, respectively. Visas valid for one to two years will also still cost $145 and visas valid for two years to five years remains at $155.
“The visa fee adjustments are intended to boost tourism,” said an official from the Ministry of Finance’s tax policy department, according to Vietnamese newspaper Tuoi Tre.
The reduced fees follow other measures to boost international visitor numbers, such as visa waivers for one year for five European nations (UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain), launched on July 1, and citizens from the US being offered year-long visas.
