Entry Requirements

Vietnam allows nationals of 23 countries to enter Vietnam without a visa for varying time periods, most of the countries being members of the ASEAN. For this reason, a visa for participants from Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and Myanmar is not required for certain period of stay. Until 30th June 2017, visa is not required for British, French, German, Italian and Spanish citizens with passport having at least six-month validity travelling to Vietnam for up to 15 days for all purposes. The 15-day visa exemption is for single entry only and includes the date of entry and the date of exit. You must have a visa before entering Viet Nam if you want to stay longer than 15 days. For further information about entry requirements please get in touch with Vietnamese Embassies (e.g. the Vietnamese Embassy in Germany).
