Extending Vietnam free visa for Germany passport holders

After a year performed visa exemption Vietnam for five Europe countries from July 1st , 2015 to June 30th, 2016 and to promote the development of Vietnam tourism, Ministry of culture, sports and tourism are going to decide extending Vietnam visa for five Europe countries including Germany citizens from 15 days to 30 days single entry and effect from 1 year to 5 years.

As the new regulation, all Germany passport holders will have a right to enter Vietnam without visa Vietnam during 15 days and single entry, but if you want to stay in Vietnam longer and multiple entries, German still have to apply for Vietnam visa as normal by two easy ways: directly in Vietnam Embassies and Vietnam visa on arrival online

If you enter Vietnam by visa exemption, please take some well-notes as below:

  • Prepare your passport and return flight tickets
  • You can only come back Vietnam after exiting Vietnam about 30 days
  • You still apply visa to Vietnam as normal if you want to stay longer than 15 days or multiple entries
  • The price for extending Vietnam visa is quite expensive rather than applying for Vietnam visa and stamping visa at Vietnam airport
