need a Vietnam visa or not

Vietnam visa for tourism


We are planning to visit Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City for 1 week for tourism. My daughter and I are Indian passport holders, while my wife and step son are citizens of Belarus. We are currently residing in Hong Kong.

For citizens of Belarus for a stay of 15 days it seems that visa is not necessary while for Indian citizens visa on arrival is required. Can you please confirm and suggest the best way to proceed to get the visa?


Hello Kallol,

First of all, thank you for contacting us.

Please be confirmed that your wife and step son do not need to obtain a Vietnam visa as they are exempted from Vietnam visa within 15 days and for you and your daughter as Indians, you must apply for Vietnam visa. For your case, it is 1 month single entry visa.

To apply, please fill out the online Vietnam visa application form and then make payment of service fee (it is US $37 for both of you). Then, you will need to check your email within 2 working days to get the visa approval letter. You get on flight with the document and then get stamped visa at Vietnam Airport.

Should you need any further information, please feel free to contact us.

Best regards,
