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

Type of visa Up to 15 days Over 15 days

Note:

  • Such visa exemption cannot be extended in Vietnam now. So, in case you wish to stay in Vietnam for more than 15 consecutive day, applying for a valid visa for Vietnam is highly recommended.
  • The requirement on the 30-day interval between the stays with visa waivers has been removed. It means that Japanese citizens can enter Vietnam visa-free for every trip of no more than 15 days.
