Frequently Asked Questions

There are 2 cases in which Belarus citizens have to apply for a Vietnam visa:
– Stay longer than 15 days
The policy of free visa just allows you to enter Vietnam within a short duration of time. If you want to stay in Vietnam for 1month or 3 months, etc…, you are required to (also should ) apply a visa. The fee to apply a 3-month visa is much cheaper than the fee to get free 15-day exemption + fee to extend extra 3 months. Thus, you should consider about how long you really want to stay in Vietnam apply for a visa beforehand.
– Enter multiple times
With visa free policy, you are permitted to enter Vietnam with single entry only. An interval of at least 30 days between two visa-free visits is required. So if you enter Vietnam using visa exemption in the first time, then you come to another country before re-entering Vietnam, you need an interval of at least 30days. If not, you must apply for a visa.
