Visa exemption


Visa exemption

Nov 24, 2016


I'm spanish citizen and I have a visa exemption to travel to Vietnam within 15 days.

My question is: Do I need a flight ticket back or any other transport ticket to proof I leave the country before 15 days?

I want to cross the border to Laos by foot or maybe buy a bus ticket once in Hanoi, in case I need to prove it, how can I?

Air Asia told me I need this ticket and didn't let me took the flight I bought to Vietnam? Is this legal? Can they do this?

According the Vietnamese Resolution No. 46NQ-CP there's no need to proof this go-back ticket.

Can someone make sure is this right?

Here the link of the Resolution.ài%20viết/DispForm.aspx?List=dc7c7d75-6a32-4215-afeb-47d4bee70eee&ID=64

Here official notice of the new exemption visa list of the Vietnamese Government:

Thank you so much.

I'm currently stuck at Shanghai Putong airport because of this. So I would appreciate a quick answer, as soon as possible.

Best regards,

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your email.

We would like to confirm you that according to the Vietnam Immigration's new policy, from July 1, 2015 to June 2017, 6 countries (including France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK and Belarus) no need Visa if they stay in Vietnam less than 15 days. However, the previous visit must be far at least 30 days the next visit as well as your passport's validity is more than 6 months.

If you meet all requirements as above, you then can enter Vietnam without Visa and do not need have to show the return ticket because if you have a plan to stay here more, you can extend Visa.

Best regards

E-visa team.
