In December 2018, the South Korean Embassy in Vietnam announced it would grant C-3 visas to residents of Hanoi, Danang and HCM City. The visa holders can stay in South Korea for up to 30 days, with no restrictions on the number of visits for five years.

Since the new visa policy took effect, there have been an increasing number of Vietnamese people applying for visas to South Korea.

The embassy today announced on its Facebook page that they would stop granting this kind of visa to those who are only temporary but not permanent residents of the three cities from June 10.

According to the post, there have been an increasing number of people bringing fake temporary residence books to ask for visas, leading to a rise in the number of illegal stays in South Korea.
