Conditions for visa exemption

Citizens of Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway will be exempted from entry visa to Viet Nam if:

  2. The travelers hold valid passports of the above countries, with validity of at least 6 months from the intended date of entry into Viet Nam;

  4. The entry should be at least 30 days after the previous departure date from Viet Nam. 
  5. The traveler has not been banned from entering Viet Nam.

Other travelers should apply for visas with the Viet Nam Embassy as usual before leaving their home country.


  1. The final decision to allow a person without a visa to enter Viet Nam will be taken by the immigration authority upon arrival, based on the authority's judgments of the documents and information then presented.
  2. Due to the fact that this visa exemption rule is relatively new, the traveler may experience difficulties boarding on some airlines other than Viet Nam Airlines who will require a Viet Nam entry visa be presented before boarding a flight to Viet Nam. Viet Nam authority has informed all major airlines of the new rules and hope that the problems will soon disappear, however if the traveler encounter such problem, please be patient and explain the new rule to the airliner's staffs.
