Vietnam visa requirements and guide for UK citizens

At the moment, all UK Citizens are NOT REQUIRED to get a visa to visit Vietnam if they stay in the country for 45 days or less. Otherwise, they need to obtain a valid visa before departure for Vietnam.

Luckily, getting a visa to visit Vietnam no longer requires UK passport holders a visit to a local Vietnam embassy or consulate or obtain a visa on arrival at the Vietnam airport. It’s now possible to get ready in the form of an electronic visa (e-visa) which can be applied online easily.

The Vietnam e-visa is an electronic travel authorization that can be used for one or several visits to Vietnam depending on the visa type (single or multiple entry). It grants its holders a stay of up to 90 days in Vietnam.

Vietnam e-visa requirements for UK citizens

There are a few essential documents necessary in order to fulfill the e-visa requirements for Vietnam. In order to successfully get the e-visa for Vietnam, the UK travelers must have the following:

  • A passport valid for at least 06 months from the date of arrival;
  • An Email Address to which notifications and the e-Visa will be sent; and
  • A debit or credit card to pay for the e-visa fees.
