Visa & Passport Services
Vietnam Visa Requirements
Australian, Canadian, New Zealand, and USA passport holders require a tourist visa to visit Vietnam. The 15-day visa exemption for British passport holders and other EU countries has been temporarily suspended and passport holders of these countries must now have a valid visa in order to enter Vietnam.
– Nationals of most ASEAN countries: No visa is required if they plan to stay less than 30 days.
– Nationals of South Korea, Japan, Russia, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland: No visa is required if they plan to stay less than 15 days (applied for both tourist and businessman).
– Citizens of other countries are required to get an entry visa for Vietnam before departure or an approval letter for a Visa on Arrival (the visa issued on arrival at Vietnam International Airports)
Applying for a visa
Travellers can apply for a 30 day tourist visa (single or multiple entry) from the nearest Vietnamese Embassy or via the more convenient method of applying online for an E Visa. Processing time for an E Visa is 3 days. The cost is approximately USD$20. After submitting an application you will receive a confirmation number, then upon arriving to Vietnam you will receive the actual visa and additionally pay a stamping fee of USD$25. Applying in advance and then collecting your tourist visa upon arrival is available to all travellers entering the country via Hanoi – Noi Bai International Airport, Ho Chi Minh City – Tan Son Nhat International Airport and Danang International Airport.
