From 15th May 2022, international visitors are not required to have Covid-19 vaccinated certification, Covid-19 testing and quarantine requirements. Only valid medical/travel insurance covering Covid-19 treatment is required.

If you are near a Vietnamese embassy or consulate, you can submit your photo, application form, passport, and visa fee in person. This website will guide you through the process.
