The South Korean Embassy in Hanoi also confirmed that the number of visa applicants increased suddenly, causing overload. 

According to Mr. Nguyen Cong Hoan, Director of HaNoiRedtours, the Kim-chi cuisine’s homeland is enjoying cherry blossom season and entering peak tourist season, attracting many foreign travellers. 

Additionally, the number of Vietnamese students and workers going to the country has also increased unexpectedly. 

Another reason is that many people misunderstand the five- year visa granting policy for Vietnamese citizens will be changed and tightened in the future.
