Just passing on info regarding the changes made to the Vietnamese Visa for US passport holders..

US citizens no longer can apply for the 2 week visa free, 3 month single or 3 month multiple entry Visas.

You can ONLY get a 1 Year multiple entry Visa, which - depending on where you get it - will cost $160.

It’s a pretty awkward situation. There’s alot of debate on the expat groups as to whether or not it’s going to affect tourism here. Obviously if you are working or staying long term it’s great, you are saving heaps by avoiding having to go on visa runs every three months. But for those visiting for a shorter time, specifically backpackers - the price is definitely going to put people off.
