The new government resolution was issued on Monday as the amended Law on Immigration will take effect July 1.
This is an initial step showing Vietnam is planning to open up again, said Nguyen Duc Chi, a tourism expert, adding that for the policy to fully manifest, there has to be resumption of flight routes as well, apart from other things.
"Who the e-visa would be issued to - diplomats, investors or tourists, would have to be reaffirmed," he said.
Certain cases, including people with diplomatic or official passports, or those coming in for special economic projects, are allowed to enter. All entrants are quarantined for 14 days upon arrival and tested for the novel coronavirus.
