Vietnam Visa Exemption List

List of nationalities exempted from Vietnam Visas that stated by Vietnamese Government

Almost foreigners need a valid visa to Vietnam. But almost is not all. Nationals of many countries which have signed bilateral or unilateral visa exemption agreement with Vietnam do not need to have a valid visa to stay in Vietnam for a certain period of time.

For those who wish to stay in Vietnam longer than the exemption duration, they are advised to apply for a visa by one of two following ways:

Contact the most convenient Vietnam Embassy (traditional way to obtain a visa to Vietnam); OR

Apply online for a visa approval letter to get visa stamped at the arrival airport in Vietnam (applicable for air travelers to Vietnam only). For more information about how visa on arrival works, please click HERE
