Hi, I’m in Bangkok before visiting Vietnam via land border crossing. As here in UK, I’m far from the embassy? Can I apply for Vietnam visa via the embassy in Bangkok? Please advize.

Dear Solamas,

Please be kindly informed that you can apply for Vietnam visa at any embassy which is the most convenient for you. But before you go, we wish to note here that as a UK citizen, you are exempted from Vietnam visa for 15 days if:

  1. Your passport is valid for more than 6 months from your entry date; and
  2. Your entry date does not fall within 30 days from the exit date of your previous stay in the country with visa exemption.

If this is your case, you do not need a visa to Vietnam at all. Otherwise, please contact the Vietnam embassy in Bangkok to arrange your visa.

Here are contact details of the Vietnam embassy in Bangkok:

  • Address: 83/1 Wireless Road, Lumpini, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330, THAILAND
  • Phone: (662) 267 9602
  • Fax: (662) 254 4630
  • Your Email: [email protected]

Should you need any further information, please feel free to let us know.

Kind regards,
