Visa requirement for seamen
Visa requirement for seamen
I have a UK passport and will be arriving in Vung Tao on the 3rd July.
I have been working on a Korean cable ship.
What are my visa requirements for entering Vietnam.
I also want to stay three nights before flying back to the UK.
Thank you for your email!
The online visa (or Visa on arrival) is just accepted if you are travelling by plane only.
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. And the previous visit must be far at least 30 days the next visit.
However, until now we are still waiting for new policy. If this rule is not updated after June 30 2016, you need to apply visa to enter Vietnam. You can apply at this link: http://www.vietnam-evisa.org/apply-visa.html.

Dear Birender singh yadav,
To first answer your questions, please notice that unless your vessel needs to enter any seaport in Vietnam, you do not need to apply for a visa.
However, if it does, please contact Vietnam Embassy in your country for more precise information on your case as we only process E-visa for tourism and business purpose only.
I'm from India.Can you please tell me if seaman visa will be issued on arrival to Vietnam?
Dear Arun Adithya

In your case, kindly contact Vietnam Embassy directly for more detail.
