HCM CITY — The Viet­namese gov­ern­ment has approved a two-year ex­ten­sion of the pi­lot e-visa is­suance pro­gramme for for­eign­ers vis­it­ing the coun­try.

The pol­icy, launched on Fe­bru­ary 1 last year, ben­e­fit­ting trav­ellers from 40 coun­tries, in­clud­ing China, Ja­pan, South Korea, In­dia, the US, Ger­many, and Swe­den, was sched­uled to ex­pire next Fe­bru­ary.

Ap­pli­cants can get a 30-day, sin­gleen­try e-visa for a tourist or busi­ness trip by pay­ing a US$25 ap­pli­ca­tion fee on­line.

Ap­pli­cants are re­quired to com­plete a form avail­able on two sep­a­rate web­sites (one in Viet­namese and the other in English) run by the Min­istry of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity. They will re­ceive an ap­pli­ca­tion code and be asked to pay a non­re­fund­able fee on­line.

Vis­i­tors with e-visas can en­ter the coun­try at any of Vieät Nam’s eight in­ter­na­tional air­ports, in­clud­ing in HCM City, Haø Noäi and Ñaø Naüng. They can also ar­rive by land at 13 in­ter­na­tional bor­der gates and by sea at seven ports around the coun­try. — VNS
