For citizens of countries that have an agreement on visa-free travel with Vietnam, including Russia, the period of stay in the country without obtaining a visa is increased from the current 15 to 45 days.

The validity period of an electronic visa, which foreigners can apply for to enter Vietnam, in accordance with the approved changes, is increased from 30 to 90 days.

After obtaining an e-Visa, a foreigner will be able to enter and exit an unlimited number of times within 90 days without going through the procedures for obtaining a new visa.

Currently, an e-Visa issued to foreigners is valid only once. Vietnam issues e-visas to citizens of 80 countries, including Russians.
