Attention: Vietnam to cease the 'automatic entension of stay' policy

As Vietnam reopens for regular international flights, starting on 15 January 2022 the Vietnamese Immigration Department will cease the ‘automatic extension of stay’ policy for foreign nationals. We encourage Australians to review their visa status and if necessary leave Vietnam to avoid overstaying their visa.
