The Vietnam government on Tuesday has agreed to resume its visa exemption policy for 13 countries – which will allow travelers to enter Vietnam for up to 15 days without a visa. 

According to VNExpress, the countries include Belarus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Norway, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, and the U.K.

The government also announced it is resuming its pre-pandemic immigration procedures for foreigners and overseas Vietnamese. 

According to local reports, Vietnam has received over 10,000 foreign arrivals since November last year after the country partially reopened its international borders. 

Vietnam is home to seven casinos, including Corona Casino Phu Quoc, HOIANA, Ho Tram, Casino Do Son, Casino Ha Long, Aristo, and Club Crowne Danang.
