The Vietnamese government has lengthened the list of countries eligible for e-visas and border gates that are allowed to grant entry e-visas in a move to attract more tourists to the country.

The new decree prescribes 35 countries with citizens who are piloted for e-visas, including Austria, Iceland, Belgium, Portugal, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Qatar, Andorra, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Croatia, Estonia, Fiji, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Macedonia, Micronesia, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Marshall Islands, Solomon Islands, San Marino, Cyprus, Switzerland, China (applicable for Hong Kong and Macao passport holders and not applicable for China’s e-passport holders), Vanuatu, Western Samoa, Serbia and Slovenia. 

In addition, international border gates Tay Trang in the northern mountainous province of Dien Bien, Na Meo in the central province of Thanh Hoa, La Lay in the central province of Quang Tri, Duong Dong port in the southern province of Kien Giang and Chan May port in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue will are allowed to handle e-visas immigration.
