In 2018, there is a big change in Vietnam visa for UK citizens. As you know that, the previous policy for 15-day free Vietnam visa for UK citizens became expired on June 31, 2018 and there has been a great change related to it, accordingly the UK citizens continue to get 15-day Vietnam visa exemption until June 31, 2021.

The conditions defining who are eligible for the visa exemption remain unchanged. Accordingly, the UK Citizens who wish to take advantage of 15-day free visa to Vietnam must:

  • Have their stay in Vietnam not exceed 15 consecutive days; AND
  • Have never been in Vietnam before OR have their arrival date not fall within 30 days following exit date of their last stay in Vietnam with visa exemption.

Otherwise, a Vietnam visa is required.

UK citizens at the moment have up to 3 ways to get a visa for Vietnam.

  1. Vietnam visa at Vietnam embassy;
  2. Vietnam visa on arrival;
  3. Vietnam e-visa
