To visit Vietnam, nationals of most countries require a visa which must be obtained in advance from an overseas Vietnamese Embassy/ Consulate or on arrival at the airport or at the country border. Visas are issued on entry to the country in exceptional circumstances, such as natural calamity or departure from a country that does not have a Vietnamese Consulate or diplomatic representative. A business or tourist visa for Vietnam can be obtained on submission of the relevant application form, passport (valid for at least six months) and other documents indicating the purpose of the visit.
Citizens of the following countries do not require a Vietnamese entry visa for stays of specified periods, ranging from 14 to 30 days: Denmark, Finland, Russia, Norway, Swedeen; Japan, South Korea; Germany, France, England, Italy, Spain and ASEAN member countries (including Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand). Moreover, those entering Vietnam with diplomatic, official and special passports enjoy entry visa exemption for up to 90 days in accordance with bilateral treaties (to date, Vietnamhas signed 54 bilateral treaties on entry visa exemption).
