Vietnam, Italy start visa exemption agreement

An agreement on visa exemption for diplomatic passport holders signed between the Vietnamese and Italian Governments took effect as of Jan. 20, 2012.

Under the agreement, the two countries’ holders of valid diplomatic passports, whose residence does not exceed 90 days, will be exempted from visa requirements during a six-month period, starting from the entry date to Vietnam (for Italian citizens) or to the first country in the Schengen area (for Vietnamese citizens)./.

Visa exemption for overseas Vietnamese to go ahead

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on August 17 has signed Decision No  135/2007/QD-TTg to promulgate a new regulation that will grant visa  exemptions to Overseas Vietnamese from September 1, 2007. Ethnically Vietnamese people that hold foreign passports and foreign  nationals who are their husbands, wives and children will benefit from  the new policy.

A certificate must be obtained by the passport holders for the  exemption to be utilised. The certificate will be valid for five years.  Overseas Vietnamese will be granted a maximum of 90-day length of stay  with extensions available inside the country. (2012)

In order to be granted visa exemption certificates at Vietnamese  representative offices abroad, overseas Vietnamese need to submit one of  three following documents: a document that proves they are ethnically  Vietnamese; a guarantee by overseas Vietnamese associations based in the  country where they are residents of or by a Vietnamese citizen; and a  document by authorised foreign agencies certifying that they are  ethnically Vietnamese.

Husbands, wives and children of Vietnamese people living abroad will  also need to submit documents that prove their relationship to the  Vietnamese member of their immediate family.

Expecting a rush on representative offices abroad, the Committee for  Overseas Vietnamese has sent 200,000 visa exemption certificates to  Vietnamese embassies overseas.

The move to exempt visas for overseas Vietnamese is part of the  Government’s efforts to speed up the implementation of the Politburo’s  Resolution No. 36 on tasks relating to overseas Vietnamese. The visas  exemption policy was announced by President Nguyen Minh Triet during his  visit to the US on June this year.

According to the Committee for Overseas  Vietnamese, there are currently close to three million overseas  Vietnamese who have mostly settled in the US, France, Thailand, Australia and  Canada. Around 1000,000 overseas Vietnamese return to Vietnam each year.
