Twenty travel agencies across the country are exempting visa fees for international tourists who buy package tours under the Impressive Viet Nam promotion programme.
Vu The Binh, head of the Viet Nam National Administration of Tourism, said the country was receiving five to six foreign travellers entering Viet Nam without paying for a visa a day.
Today, the country will receive a group of 103 tourists from Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and Portugal from Macau. Binh said Saigontourist and Travel Service Co and Indochina Services are the leaders in exempting visa fees.
