UK Passport Holders Can Visit Vietnam without Visa until August 2021
According to the information released by the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, “International visitors to Viet Nam in December estimated 1,276,353 arrivals, increase 8.9% over last month and 42.2% over the same period last year. Total international arrivals in 12 months reached 12,922,151 arrivals, increase 29.1% over the same period last year.” The data even reveal that most of the international tourists travel to Vietnam by Air. Also, most of the tourists visiting Vietnam are from Asian and American countries.
The visitors from the UK normally prefer other tourist destinations to Vietnam. But the Vietnamese Government recently made amendments to the Vietnam Immigration Regulations to make it easier for British citizens to holiday in the country. The revised visa regulations enable people holding UK passports to stay in Vietnam for less than 15 days without a visa. The British citizens can avail the Vietnam visa exemption till 30th July 2021. They can even avail the visa exemption while visiting Vietnam for both business and tourist purposes.
The Government of Vietnam initially introduced the visa exemption program for citizens of France, Germany, Spain, and Italy. It revised the Vietnam Immigration Regulations in June to extend visa exemption to people holding UK passports until 30th July 2018. The visitors holding UK passports can take advantage of this program to avail single-entry stays in Vietnam for less than 15 days. The revised visa regulations aim to persuade more British citizens to visit Vietnam for business or tourism purposes.
The Vietnam Airlines even make it easier for people holding UK passports to visit Vietnam by operating nonstop scheduled services on a daily basis. But the visitors still need to apply for a visa to Vietnam if they want to stay in the country for more than 15 days. Likewise, they must apply for multi-entry point visas to Vietnam.
