On 14 August 2023. Vietnam eased their visa requirements for South Africans entering the country.
This means that South Africans will now be able to enter Vietnam by applying for an e-visa. Prior to this announcement, South Africans could enter the country with their visa-on-arrival programme, which was limited to a stay of 15 days.
The new e-visa programme allows South Africans multiple entries within 90 days that are issued to travelers by Vietnam’s Immigration Department, through the electronic transaction system.
