Dear CALVIN COX,
Thank you for your questions.
With 1 year multiple tourist visa, you can stay maximum 90 days per visit. So that's why you need to leave Vietnam every 3 months and re-enter to get a new stamped. So if you worry about the cost for each time go in and go out Vietnam, you can leave Vietnam by land, then come back to get a new stamped. We think it will save your money than getting a flight out.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
