    As of March 2022 the government has re-established most pre-pandemic visa rules, therefore you no longer need a “specialist visa” to enter the country.

    As of the writing of this article, foreigners simply need to apply for an E-visa through the government’s online visa portal which allows you to stay in the country for 30 days. Once in the country, you are able to extend your stay via an Investment Visa (if you plan on investing in the country), or Work Permit & TRC (if you plan on working for a company in Vietnam).
