Vietnam to increase the authorized period of stay for e-visa holders and certain visa-exempt nationals
Effective 15 August 2023, Vietnamese e-visas will be valid for up to 90 days and allow holders to enter and depart from the country multiple times. In addition, nationals of certain countries will be eligible to enter Vietnam without a visa for up to 45 days. The Vietnamese government recently approved Law No. 23/2023/QH15. Pursuant to this law, effective 15 August 2023, e-visa holders will be able to remain in Vietnam for up to 90 days (up from 30 days currently) and make multiple entries into Vietnam (compared to a single entry currently).
