Visa Exemption for Germans after 30 June 2016

Jun 02, 2016

currently I’m in Vietnam on my working visa which expires 17 July 2016 since my internship is finished by then. However, I would like to travel through the country for a little bit.

Therefore, I would like to know what the current status of the visa exemption for Germans is now? Until 30 June 2016 Germans do not need a visa for a travel duration of up to 15 days. Since my visa expires, I will be leaving the country and re-enter again. Now if I just stay up to 15 days in Vietnam, do I have to apply for a tourist visa or is the regulation for the visa exemption extended and I can enter without a visa?

Thank you in advance!

Hello Sir/Madam,

We would like to confirm you that according to the Vietnam Immigration's new policy, from July 1, 2015 to June 2016, 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.

If this policy is still not updated for July, you need to have visa to enter Vietnam.

Now if you are staying in Vietnam, you should extend visa  for stay more.
