Different amounts of stamping fee will be applied to Vietnam visa multiple entry with one month, less than six month and over six month validity.  Specifically, the new regulation charges $65, $95, $135 respectively for one month, less than six month and over six month visa.

Fees on the temporary residence card will rise to $80 for one year card, $100 for two years and $120 for three years.

People who wish to transfer their visa and temporary residence card validity from their old passport to the new one must pay $15 USD, raising the current price by $5.

The circular will be in effect on 1 January 2013.
