Vietnam VISA Update

Vietnam VISA Update

Share this page:

As of 1st July 2015, British passport holders travelling for tourism or business will be able to enter Vietnam for up to 15 days without a visa. That means Britons will save at least £54 on the cost of a single-entry visa. The new policy also applies to French, German, Spanish and Italian nationals. The new regulation follows the recent announcement of falling Chinese tourist numbers in Vietnam. Vietnam’s dispute with China over islands in the South China Sea has been blamed for the fall. Hopefully the move will improve the situation – Vietnam’s great beauty and rich history deserves to be seen.

If you are planning to travel to Vietnam remember that you must be immunised against yellow fever prior to entering the country. As most vaccines don’t offer immunity for at least two weeks after they’re given you need to make an appointment with your doctor 4 to 8 weeks before you travel. That means its now even easier for you to join us on tour.
