The second biggest market, South Korea, saw a 60 percent increase year-on-year while the third, Japan, grew at a modest 14 percent. Japanese and South Korean visitors can visit Vietnam for up to 15 days without a visa. Other markets that benefit from the same policy – Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the UK – saw increases of up to 33 percent.
