That also means Germany will grant visas on the new passports supplemented with birthplace information and allow their holders to enter this country.

Chu Tuan Duc, Minister Counsellor of the embassy, said the German authorities also hope Vietnam will take measures for facilitating and ensuring safety for travel between the two countries, and that the two sides will keep exchanging information about measures Vietnam will carry out in the time ahead.

He added the embassy is still working to add birthplace information to the new passports free of charge to create favourable conditions for Vietnamese citizens when they need to handle related procedures at German agencies.

Earlier, replying to questions from Vietnam News Agency, the German Federal Foreign Office and Federal Department of Home Affairs had said authorities of Germany are actively working and examining the new passport version of Vietnam, affirming that like Vietnam, Germany also pays great attention to the facilitation and safety of travel between the two countries.
