Do Italian citizens need a visa for Vietnam?

The table below shows a summary of the current Vietnam visa requirements for Italian citizens:

Type of visa Up to 15 days Over 15 days
Tourist visa Not required Required
Business visa Not required Required

Note:

  • The requirement on the 30-day interval between the stays with visa waivers has been removed. It means that Italian citizens can enter Vietnam visa-free for every trip of no more than 15 days.
  • This Vietnam visa waiver cannot be extended in Vietnam currently. As such, as an Italian citizen, in case you wish to stay in Vietnam for more than 15 consecutive days, obtaining a valid visa for Vietnam beforehand is highly recommended.
