When preparing for a trip to Vietnam, there are always many questions: where will I sleep? What will I be able to discover in Vietnam?


With all the information available on the Internet and in specialized guides, it is easy to get lost. We have thus gathered for you all the necessary information for this step to proceed as best as possible.


1. General information on the visa


No matter the length of your stay, a passport valid for 6 months after the scheduled date of your return is essential. For the rest, this will depend on the length of your stay.

If you are traveling in Vietnam for less than 3 months, you will have to obtain the tourist visa which will allow you to move freely on the Vietnamese territory during these 3 months.


2. How to obtain a tourist visa to discover Vietnam


You can firstly contact the Vietnam Embassy (in the country in which you reside). This institution proposes to obtain the visa by correspondence or by going directly on the spot. On the Embassy of Vietnam in Paris page, you will find the list of the necessary documents to obtain the visa. The prices vary according to the country. It is quite a simple procedure, it is however rather restrictive if you do not live near the Vietnam Embassy or do not wish to send your passport by post.

In order to get you the precious sesame, you will be asked for certain information, such as your arrival date or the type of visa chosen. It will take a few days for you to receive your invitation letter by email. On the day of your arrival, you should go to the immigration office of one of Vietnam's three international airports (Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang and Ha Noi), with the printed invitation letter, a completed form and an identity photo. You will be issued your visa after you have paid the stamping fee (between 35 and 65USD depending on the type of visa chosen). The main disadvantage of this procedure is the waiting time at the airport, which can be very long.

The visa on arrival is also available for those wishing to use the land entrances on the territory.
