How to get a Tourist Visa to Vietnam?

The Government of Vietnam offers Visa exemption for citizens of following nationality: Russia, Japan, Korea, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Brunei and other ASEAN countries.

Foreign visitors who are holders of Popular Passport from certain countries are Visa-exempt to Vietnam as follows:

  1. Russian citizens who are holders of Popular Passport, regardless of entry purpose, are not required of Visa for a period of stay no more than 15 days in Vietnam.
  2. Citizens of Japan and Korea, regardless of types of passport, are not required of Visa for a period of stay no more than 15 days in Vietnam. In fact, this normally applies to holders of Popular Passport because the Government of Vietnam shares a waiver agreement with the government of Japan and  Korean on Diplomatic Passport or Official Passport.
  3. Since May 1, 2005, citizens of Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden, regardless of types of passport and entry purpose, are not required of Visa for a period of stay no more than 15 days in Vietnam.
  4. Officials and officers of ASEAN Secretariat, citizens of ASEAN countries (except Myanmar), regardless of types of passport, are not required of Visa for a period of stay no more than 30 days in Vietnam.
