Good news for citizens of Greece who have been eagerly waiting to visit Vietnam! Starting from August 15, 2023, the Vietnamese government has officially announced a new visa policy that allows Greek citizens to apply for a 90-day e-visa. This update comes as part of the government’s resolution 127/NQ-CP, which grants 90-day e-visas to citizens of all countries.
The best part about this new policy is that applicants no longer need to go to the Vietnamese embassy or consulate to apply for a visa. Instead, they can conveniently apply online for an e-visa through the official website. This makes the whole process much simpler and more accessible for Greek citizens who wish to explore the beauty of Vietnam.
Vietnam offers multiple entry points for e-visa holders, including 13 airports, 16 land border gates, and 13 sea border gates. This means that Greek citizens can choose the most convenient point of entry based on their travel plans. Whether they prefer to arrive by air, land, or sea, there are plenty of options available for a smooth and hassle-free entry into Vietnam.
The cost for a 90-day e-visa is US$25 for single-entry and US$50 for multiple entries. It’s important to note that the e-visa fee is non-refundable, regardless of whether the visa application is approved or denied. However, considering the ease and convenience of the e-visa application process, it’s a small price to pay for Greek citizens looking to explore the wonders of Vietnam.
In terms of processing time, under normal circumstances, the e-visa is processed within 3 working days. However, during peak seasons or after holidays, it may take slightly longer. Therefore, it’s advisable for Greek citizens to plan their trips accordingly and apply for the e-visa well in advance to avoid any last-minute delays.
One of the most valuable aspects of the new e-visa policy is the allowance for multiple entries. This means that Greek citizens can enter and exit Vietnam multiple times within the 90-day validity period without having to apply for a new visa each time. This is particularly beneficial for travelers who wish to explore neighboring countries or make short trips during their stay in Vietnam. It offers a great level of flexibility and convenience for Greek citizens.
For Greek citizens who are in a rush and want to avoid potential frustration, there are commercial websites available that offer e-visa services. These websites provide a user-friendly interface and a simple application form, guaranteeing to deliver the e-visa on time. While these services may come at a slightly higher cost, they ensure a hassle-free experience for those who are short on time or prefer to have their visa processed by professionals.
The new 90-day e-visa policy for citizens of Greece is a significant step towards promoting tourism and strengthening the ties between Vietnam and Greece. With the convenience of online application, multiple entry options, and reasonable processing times, Greek citizens can now explore the vibrant culture, breathtaking landscapes, and warm hospitality of Vietnam with ease. So mark your calendars and get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey to Vietnam from August 15, 2023, onwards!
