Credit card issuance in Vietnam heats up

Asian joint stock commercial bank (ACB) has been the first lender in Vietnam to issue Visa Platinum Cards on the EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) standards, the local media cited, adding that the card has an embedded chip to store cardholder’s information in an encrypted format, thereby providing the highest level of security to the cardholders.

The issuance scheme applies to Styles and Visa debit cards, Visa Prepaid cards, Master Card Dynamic, magnetic and EMV Chip cards.

VN in the eyes of Australian visitors

The phenomenon is reinforced by VNAT, which has reported a 128% rise in Australian visitor numbers in 2010 - the greatest increase of inbound arrivals from non-Asian countries. The trend appears unlikely to be a flash in the pan either. The results of the Asia-Pacific Travel Intentions Survey, a major poll conducted by Visa and the Pacific-Asia Travel Association, were announced in November. They showed that an impressive 16% of Australians canvassed plan to visit Việt Nam in the coming two years.

Visa procedure

Most visitors to Việt Nam need a visa to enter the country. Visas are exempted for the citizens of the countries, which have signed a bilateral or unilateral visa exemption agreement with Việt Nam, tourist visa may be valid for 15 to 30 days.
