Vietnam is easily one of the leading travel destinations in South East Asia. It’s not hard to understand why: dramatic limestone landscapes, verdant green rice paddies, delicious street food, and a rich cultural history. A visit to Vietnam will shake your senses in every way. Be prepared to be shocked, surprised and even delighted.
I have been traveling to Vietnam since 2003 and during every visit, the country never ceases to amaze me. As an overseas Vietnamese, Vietnam will always be my 2nd home and a place of endless discovery.
Before you go
It’s true that some countries do not need a visa, but for other nationalities it is necessary.
There are 2 main ways to obtain a Vietnam Visa.
- At the Vietnamese embassy or consulate in your country.
- A pre-approved letter for picking up an entry visa (issued on arrival at Vietnam’s International Airports) at the airport. See here.
