Vietnam visa questions

Vietnam Visa for person holding Hong King passport by cruise

All questions above talked about visa issues if traveled by air.  What about by cruise (through ocean ship)?  I plan to take a cruise departing Hong Kong through a China port to a Vietnam port. Can I apply similar Vietnam visa on arrival like the one taking by air? The cruise ship will only allow us to stay for a few hours before departing again. So we only need a quick visa for sight visit for a few hours.  Please advise what we can do.

I’m Hong Kong passport holder.

Dear Lee,

Please be informed that you cannot apply for Vietnam visa on arrival in this case as this kind of visa is applicable to those traveling to Vietnam by air only, as you already read.

In your case, you should contact the cruise line to ask whether they can arrange Vietnam visa for you or not. Otherwise, you should contact the embassy of Vietnam in Hong Kong to apply for Vietnam visa.

Here are contact details of Vietnam embassy in Hong Kong:

  • Address: 15/F, Great Smart Tower, 230 Wan Chai Road, Wan Chai, HONG KONG, CHINA
  • Phone: (852) 2591 4517
  • Fax: (852) 2591 4524

Should you need any further information about Vietnam visa for Hong Kong or others, please feel free to let us know.

Kind regards,
