Before the guidance of the Ministry of Health, the Government also issued a resolution on visa exemption for citizens of 13 countries.
Nguyen Nguyet Van Khanh, Deputy Director of Vietravel’s Marketing Department, said this is a reasonable condition, in the context that countries in the region and the world have also relaxed conditions to welcome international guests.
Currently, the department in charge of bringing guests into Vietnam is updating the latest information and policies to partners and customers. The company cooperates with representative offices in Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, France, USA… to build a set of products suitable for each market.
