A significant change in the new Law on Entry, Exit, Transit, and Residence of Foreigners in Vietnam active in this July is that a number of new visa types are introduced along with new validity and requirements for each. In summary, the new law applies a new method of classification which is more specific and direct. It also allows a longer validity term of certain categories of visa but their requirements are, of course, stricter than the others. On the other hand, short-terms visa are amended in order to make application easier and more convenient (thanks to the e-visa policies). It is anticipated that the new law will change the habit of travelling and immigration into Vietnam. In this article, visa5s would like sum up the novel system of visa categories in Vietnam from July, 2020 as well as their valid time period and outstanding required conditions.
