Reform

In June 2015 it was proposed to extend the visa exemption for tourists from the European Union, the United States, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong and Taiwan. In August 2014 Ministry of Tourism proposed to Government to extend the visa exemption for tourists from France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and India. In September 2014 the proposed list was further shortened to Australia, France, Germany, India and the UK. In April 2015 the travel association submitted a proposal to the Government to add Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Germany, France, Spain, United Kingdom, Brazil, India, Ukraine, Latvia and Estonia to the list of visa exempt nationalities, however the process is expected to take a long time. In May 2015 it was proposed to extend the visa exemption period to 30 days for all countries if they are guaranteed by a travel agency and to add France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, India and Canada to the visa exemption list. In June 2015 the Vietnam Tourism Association proposed visa-free access for all foreign tourists.
