South Korea will resume issuance of short-term visas and e-visas to Vietnamese tourists from June 1 after over two years of suspension due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The visas allow holders to stay for up to 90 days.

Since April 2020 South Korea has only been granting short-term visas for people visiting the country for trade, investment and humanitarian purposes.

It now allows quarantine-free entry but requires visitors to take a PCR test within a day.

In 2019 over 550,000 visited the country.
