TOKYO (VNS) — Japan decided to ease short-term visa requirements to nationals of Viet Nam starting from February 15, the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced yesterday.

The ministry said the relaxation of visa requirements allowed multiple entries for the holder of a short-term stay visa, which permits a stay of up to 90 days.

Those eligible are businessmen, intellectuals, and cultural scholars who travel to Japan for business purposes.

In addition, the period of validity will be extended from five years to up to 10 years.

It is the first time Japan has issued multiple-entry visas with a 10-year validity period.

The decision is part of the country's effort to enhance people-to-people exchanges between Japan and Viet Nam. It is also expected to help improve convenience in business activities and increase the number of tourists from Viet Nam to Japan. — VNS
