Deputy Foreign Ministry Spokesman Doan Khac Viet made the remarks at the ministry’s regular press conference on May 28 in reply to reporters’ questions about Vietnam granting e-visas for citizens from the 80 countries from July 1.

He noted that based on the law amending and supplementing some articles of the law on entry, exit, transit and residence of foreigners in Vietnam, approved by the National Assembly on November 25, 2019, the Government recently issued a resolution on the list of countries whose citizens are entitled to an e-visa and the list of international ports of entry via which foreigners with e-visas can enter and exit the country. This resolution will take effect on July 1.

The issuance of the resolution aims to carry out Vietnam’s administrative reform policy, especially in entry and exit management, thereby creating additional conditions for investment attraction, socio-economic development, tourism, diplomacy, and defense and security, according to Viet.
