Conditions for foreigners to enter Vietnam

Pursuant to Article 20 of Law No. 51/2019/QH14 amending and supplementing a number of articles of the Law on entry, exit, transit, and residence of foreigners in Vietnam, the foreigners can enter Vietnam when they meet the following conditions:

  • Having a passport or international travel document and a Vietnam visa, except for cases of visa exemption.

  • Not subject to the cases of entry ineligibility.
  • Foreigners who use electronic visas (E-visas) for entry must meet the prescribed conditions and enter through international border gates determined by the Government.

However, during the epidemic prevention period and when there are many changes in the procedures for entry into Vietnam, to ensure the implementation of safe and effective measures for epidemic prevention and control, the Government of Vietnam will only allow foreigners who are investors, technical experts, skilled workers, enterprise managers, their relatives, and foreign students to enter Vietnam with safe quarantine plans.

If the foreigners in such cases wish to enter Vietnam in the present time, they need to contact the agencies or organizations in Vietnam where they are expected to work to apply for entry visas according to the laws.
