    COVID-19/visa

    Mar 14, 2020
    Hello,

    Me and my partner are currently in Thailand and plan to travel to Laos and Cambodia in the coming weeks. We had planned to then travel to Ho Chi Minh City from Phnom Penh towards the end of April, however we have heard that the visa waiver program for UK citizens has been suspended and have also heard that you are no longer processing e-visa applications due to the corona virus. Could you advise us on whether we are still able to get an e-visa for Travel to Vietnam or whether this is not possible despite having been in South East Asia since the beginning of March?

    Thank you
