Many foreigners have booked flights to return to Vietnam after more than two years of border closure, yet are still waiting to hear about new visa rules.

"I have booked flights to HCMC for March 21 to attend a wedding but visitor visa applications are still suspended. They should be open for visas for travel after March 15. Also hard to get the required Covid insurance. One should be able to buy the insurance on arrival."

"I'm packed, ticket in hand for April 1. I hope they work out the visa issue ASAP, or I cancel and go to Thailand again. Hurry up and wait may be a VN thing, but there's plenty of travel options now."

"I booked a one way flight from LAX into SGN on June 23 and hope to be granted a 1-year, multiple entry, visa. Vietnam tourism agency, please return to this visa program."

"It's finally time to publish the new visa rules. We had two years to prepare for the opening day. We have booked flights to HCMC for March 24 despite the uncertainty because we have faith in the Vietnamese government. Nevertheless, we must finally get the opportunity to apply for visas for 3 months. Decisions and transparency are now absolutely necessary."

"Recognize people working remotely and let us be in the country on some sensible kind of visas. I will gladly spend 30k USD yearly on rent, restaurants, services. Happy to move some money into Vietnamese bank."
Daniel Nguyen

"If they just give 15 day exemptions it won't be enough, people aren't going to travel now for short trips. Give 90 days exemption like Malaysia does then people won't have to worry about visas or extensions."
