The prime minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc is decided to extend the visa waivers program for visitors from the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Spain for 3 more years on 03 May, 2018

Vietnam’s latest extended visa-free travel policy for citizens from five Western European countries officially came into effect on Sunday, with a longer validity of three years, compared to one year in the last three renewals.

Visitors from the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain have enjoyed visa exemption, with an allowed stay of 15 days for each entry, when traveling to Vietnam since July 2015, when the year-long policy was introduced.

Following the first renewal in June 2016 and second extension in June 2017, the policy expired on Saturday last week.

During a government meeting on May 3, Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc agreed to continue easing visa requirements for visitors from these five countries from July 1, 2018, responding in favor of suggestions from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and relevant agencies.

While the visa waiver has had to be reconsidered annually since 2016, the latest extension has a validity period of three years.

However, the premier decided not to increase the allowable stay per entry from 15 to 30 days, nor to add more countries to the visa-free list as suggested by the tourism ministry and industry insiders.

PM Phục believed that relevant ministries and agencies still need to evaluate the effectiveness of the current visa waiver, applied to the five countries under a pilot scheme, before making any changes, according to Mai Tiến Dũng, Minister and Chairman of the Government Office.

* Condition to get Vietnam Visa for citizens of United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain and Germany for free:

- Passport must be in validity for more than 6 months from the entry date Vietnam.

- The entry date must be at the minimum of 30 days from the previous exit. Otherwise that person is required to have appropriate visa to enter Vietnam.
