From November 23, foreigners will pay US$25 for a single-entry visa and US$50 for a visa valid for three months or less when they visit Vietnam, according to a circular recently issued by the Ministry of Finance.

These fees are down from US$45 and US$95 respectively, according to the ministry’s Circular No. 157/2015/TT-BTC. However, the circular says the fee for a long-term visa fee will remain unchanged but that for a long-term residence permit will be up.

Particularly, the fees for visas valid for more than three to six months and six months to one year will be kept at US$95 and US$135 respectively. The circular adds the fees for visas valid from one year to two years at US$145, and visas from over two years to five years at US$155.

The fees for residence permits valid from one to two years will increase from US$100 to US$145 and those with over two years to five years will start from US$155, instead of the current US$120.

Some related-fees for visa issuance will also drop. For example, the transfer fees for valid visas and residence permits from old passports to new ones will fall from US$15 to US$5 and the fee for amending and supplementing visa contents will be removed instead of US$10.

With these changes, the fee for a single-entry visa will fall to the 2012 level. In early 2013, the fee rose to US$45 plus US$15-20 for visa procedures pushed tour prices up and sparked concerns among travel firms and hotels about its impact of international arrivals in the country.
