PASSPORT & VISA
A passport and a visa are required for entry into Vietnam. A regular tourist visa is valid for up to 30 days. However, some Southeast Asian countries including Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and Laos are exempted from visa when entering Vietnam. Vietnam also has a visa exemption for Japanese, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and Finnish citizens. Passport holders from these countries can travel to Vietnam up to 15 days without applying for tourist visas.
There are two kinds of tourist visas. The first can be obtained from the Vietnamese Embassy or the Consulate in the travelers' home country. The second can be obtained at the international airports (Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Danang) on arrival in Vietnam provided that it has been pre-approved by the Immigration Office. Heritages Vietnam   offers visa procurement services for individuals and groups. The procedure is as follows:

REGULAR VISA
• Passport details and arrival and departure dates for each traveler are sent by e-mail or fax to Heritages Vietnam  no later than 7-10 days prior to their departure date to Vietnam.
• Heritage Vietnam submits the details to the Immigration Office, which takes between 3 to 5 working days to process.
• The Immigration Office notifies Heritage Vietnam  of the visa approval and sends a fax/telex approval code to the Embassy or Consulate in the travelers' home country.
• Heritage Vietnam sends a faxed copy (or email) of the approval letter to the agent or directly to the individual concerned.
• The agent should submit the client's passport, photographs and faxed copy of the approval to the local Vietnamese embassy or consulate of the client's home country. The Vietnam Embassy or Consulate will then stamp / stick a Vietnam visa on the client's passport and collect the VISA STAMPING FEE directly from the applicant. In cases where Vietnam has no diplomatic representative, agents should inform Heritages Vietnam  so that an alternative Vietnamese embassy/consulate can be located.
