A few years ago, the processing of the Vietnam visa was a bit more complicated since you had to go to the embassy/consulate, etc. For a couple of years, Vietnam has made a series of visa policy reforms, and it has made it a bit easier for us.
Belarusian citizens who are traveling to Vietnam for tourism or business purpose can opt for a visa exemption for 15 days or less. Therefore, if you are going to travel for tourism or business for less than two weeks, you can do it without the need to process any visa.
All countries that do NOT need a visa to travel to Vietnam
If you have a passport from any of these countries, you do not need a visa: Chile (90 days), Spain, Italy, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Belarus, Japan, and South Korea.
Of course, this has some limitations:
- Your stay cannot exceed 15 days (except Chileans who can be up to 90 days without a visa).
- Remember that you can only be 15 days from your arrival in the country, this visa exemption is only one entry. To be able to enjoy the visa exemption again, 30 days must pass since you leave the country to be able to re-enter a visa.
The Embassy also recommends traveling with proof of departure from the country within the 15 days marked by the visa exemption (reservation of departure ticket). For all trips to Asia, it is equally advisable to ensure that the passport has more than two blank pages.
If you intend to re-enter before 30 days, you must process eVisa to Vietnam. This visa is valid both to enter by land borders, international airports, or seaports.
