Update on Vietnam if not already posted previously. U.S. tourists now (as of September 2016) get a default one year visa. So far, authorities are saying no more 1 month or 3 month visas for US passport holders. The one year visa allows staying 3 months max at a time, which means visa runs every 3 months for long-termers, but the visa lasts a full year. For casual tourists, this also means a more expensive visa ~$200 direct from embassy/consulate in US and a bit less if you get ~$25 VOA letter online with $135 "stamping fee" at airport. Arguably, this makes it easier for US residents to stay long term in Vietnam, and unlike Thailand, absolutely no financial or other requirements (medical, police reports, etc.). Sounds pretty automatic.
