Vietnam to increase visa cost for Americans

Jump to last reply

Heads up for any Americans planning a trip to Vietnam. It is being discussed on TA and elsewhere that Vietnam is eliminating the 1 month single entry tourist visa with a stamping fee of $25 and going to a 1 year multiple entry visa wit ha stamping fee of $135.

This would have a huge impact on American tourism to Vietnam. The majority of SE Asian countries either have no visa or charge to visit or it is very small. Let's hope the Vietnamese Tourism Ministry comes to their senses and realizes what a devastating blow this would be to the tourism industry. I would think Americans make up a sizeable percentage of overseas visitors and their loss would be noted.
