Vietnam needs joint visa to attract Chinese tourists

Posted by Admin in category of Vietnam visa news

Vietnam’s tourism has proposed cooperating with Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar to develop a travel program with a joint visa for Chinese tourists in an effort to attract more tourists from China.

Under a scheme aimed to attract Chinese tourists, the Vietnam National Administration for Tourism (VNAT) expects to attract 2-2.5 million Chinese tourists in 2015 compared to over 1.4 million last year.

The model in which countries cooperate with one another and loosen visa requirements to offer a tour with many destinations has in fact paid off well in the world. Examples include the tour to five European countries of the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, and the Asian tour to Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.

The local tourism authority also lays emphasis on the creation of new products and shopping tours as well as the cooperation with air carriers to offer discounted airfares for tourists.

The cooperation program with big travel agencies in China has been cited as one of the important programs to promote tourism products. VNAT has also proposed support for the opening of direct flights from big Chinese cities to Vietnam and the program of using charter flights to bring tourists from Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chongqing and Shenzhen to central Vietnam.

The scheme targets not only to attract more tourists, especially those traveling by air and sea with high spending, but also to extend their stays and increase their spending.

According to VNAT, the number of Chinese tourists visiting Vietnam by air has grown well. Among over 1.4 million Chinese tourists to in Vietnam last year, there were 68% coming by air while the figure was only 52% in 2010.

China has always ranked first in the top ten visitor-generating markets for Vietnam.
