Dutch priority concern to Prime Minister: Request to allow qualification of Dutch citizens for a short-term visa waiver for Vietnam

Following the increase of Dutch investments into Vietnam, the Dutch Business Association Vietnam on behalf of its members also asked for support to speed up the process of allowing Dutch citizens to enter Vietnam with a 15-day visa waiver. Granting the visa waiver to Dutch citizens would underlines the outstanding relations and further support and facilitate investments and trade between The Netherlands and Vietnam.
