The six agents are Hanoi Red Tour, Naci Travel, Hanoi Iso Tours and Hanoi Tourist, as well as South Pacific Travel and Vietfoot Travel. The agreement will assign priority to group tours at the embassy, simplifying procedures for people who have already visited the European Union and certain other countries.
The agreement was made in light of the rapidly increasing number of tourists from Viet Nam to France in recent years. Nearly 24,300 visas were granted in 2014, an increase of 28.7 per cent compared with figures from 2013.
