If you are looking into our Ultimate Vietnam trip then this should point you into the right direction on how to get a visa for travel in Vietnam. It is your responsibility to obtain the correct Visa to enter the country.
There are 3 options to obtain your visa:
Option 1: Apply in person or via post at your nearest embassy – means less hassle when arriving in Vietnam, but more expensive.
Option 2: Get a visa on arrival, which requires a visa invitation letter issued by an authorised agent before you leave home – seems a little easier and is also cheaper, but you’ll need to queue up when landing to actually have your visa issued.
Option 3: Apply for an E-Visa online – this is only available to certain nationalities and does not permit you to enter Vietnam through all entry points, only selected ones.
Generally no visa is required for travel to Vietnam lasting up to 15 days only if you are from one of the following countries: UK, France, Spain, Germany and Italy.
