HCMC – Vietnam’s tourism industry is set to open a representative office in South Korea after signing a memorandum of understanding with a Japanese partner to open an office in Japan in March.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism on Wednesday presented to Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung the plan and a scheme to attract South Korean tourists.

The ministry has also proposed a number of policies to lure foreign tourists such as offering free visas, extending the visa-free period or issuing visas at border gates.

South Korea is Vietnam’s second largest source market, after China, with a steady growth. There were around 274,000 arrivals from South Korea in the first four months, up 49.3% from the same period last year.

The number of Vietnamese tourists visiting South Korea has also increased. However, the nation has yet to produce any programs to promote tourism in South Korea, while the Koreans have held many promotions such as meeting enterprises, offering discounts and opening a representative office in Vietnam.
