(VOVWORLD) - Foreigners who entered Vietnam from March 1 can have their temporary stay permits automatically extended for another month until September 30, the Immigration Department announced on Monday. 

It is another one-month extension to the current policy, issued in mid-May and extended twice since, to support foreigners stuck in the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This means from now until September 30, people who came to Vietnam under visa waiver programs, e-visas, or tourist visas from March 1 can stay or leave Vietnam without doing any paperwork or paying any fees.

Regulations on those who entered the country before March 1 remain unchanged. Foreigners can be considered for this permit extension as long as they can prove they are stranded in Vietnam due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
