Frequently Asked Questions

No. Vietnam tourist visa on arrival is currently NOT available.

Q: I’m a Spanish citizen and I read that I’m exempted from a Vietnam visa for up to 15 days. How can I get this benefit? In other words, what are the conditions to enter Vietnam under visa exemption?

A: You are right that Spanish citizens do not need a visa to visit and stay in Vietnam for no more than 15 days. However, you need to make sure the following entry requirements:

  1. Your passport is valid for at least 6 months following your date of entry;
  2. Your passport has at least one blank page.

The exemption duration includes both arrival and exit dates. It means that 15 days of visa exemption is counted from the date you arrive in Vietnam until the date you leave the country.
For example, your arrival date is March 12, your exit date should be March 26 if you do not want to pay any fine or get a visa exemption extended while you are in Vietnam.
