Single-entry visas will cost US$45, up from the current $25, according to a statement on the government website Wednesday.

Vietnam is currently issuing two types multiple-entry visas. An up to six-month multiple entry visa currently costs $50 and a one for more than six month cost $100.

But the new regulation charges $95 for a six-month visa and $135 for the other. It also mentioned another multiple-time entry visa for less than one-month term that will cost $65.

The temporary residency card will also cost an additional $20, raising the price to $80 for a one-year card, $100 for one to two years, and $120 for two to three years.

People who want to transfer their visa or temporary residence value from old to new passports will have to pay $15 instead of the current $10, the statement said.
