Passport Requirements

All visitors are required to have a passport valid for at least one month after the intended stay.

Visa Requirements

Visas are not required for the nationals of the following countries:
Denmark, Finland, Japan, Norway, South Korea, Sweden, Russia - for stays up to 15 days;
Philippines - for stays of up to 21 days; Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand - for stays of up to 30 days.

Citizens of countries not listed above need to obtain a tourist visa from Vietnamese embassy or consulate before arrival.

An alternative to obtaining a visa beforehand is a program called 'visa on arrival', available from some on-line agencies. The travel agencies, located in Vietnam, arrange for a 'letter of approval' to be emailed or faxed to the traveler. The letter is required to get the visa stamp (for additional fee) at the arrival at one of the three international airports - Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang. The process cannot be used when crossing the land border.
