Can i get a visa (tourist) despite the fact that my passport is valid for only 4 months ?

Last updated: 2012-03-14 06:25:50

Hi there! I am an Irish student travelling Asia for the Summer (12 weeks).

When I left Ireland on the 30th of May my passport was valid for another 6 months, however now it only valid for 4. It expires on the 5th of December 2011. I am terrified this will create problems for me as I wish to move from Laos, where I currently am, to Vietnam.

The transition will be made over land. I have spent the day looking up this on the internet and most places say that I will need 6 months validity beginning on my entry into Vietnam (WHICH I DO NOT HAVE).

There is no point in me applying for a passport extension as it will take too long. I wish to spent a week in Vietnam and then fly from Ho Chi Minh to Bangkok. A small number of internet sites didnt mention the 6 month validity issue but did instead say that a month passport validity upon leaving Vietnam is necessary. (this would not create any problems for me). Im not sure if this is exactly your field of expertise but I urgently need to know anything that could help me.

Can you give me any insight as to this subject. I have tried contacting the embassy in Laos but it was too late and it will be closed at the weekend. I also tried to contact the Vietnamese embassy in London with no luck, unfortnately. I would really appreciate any help or advice you could give me, Thank you!

Vietnam Visa for Russians

Last updated: 2012-03-14 06:23:35

I am Russian nationality and I understand that I do not need visa to enter Vietnam if stay in Vietnam less than 15 days. However, I am planning to travel to Vietnam in December this year, and I will be crossing border and entering Vietnam by bus coming from Cambodia (via Bavet cross border point). Will it be OK for me to cross border and enter Vietnam at that customs point coming from Cambodia without any visa issue?

Visa for UK citizens traveling across a land boarder into Vietnam

Last updated: 2012-03-06 11:28:27


I am traveling around South East Asia and would like to visit Vietnam.
I have looked for information regarding visas and note that you can apply for a visa on arrival, the information then says that you collect the visa when you arrive at an airport.
Can you please advise how to apply for and collect a visa on arrival when traveling across a land boarder into Vietnam.

Visa for travelling on a cruise with Holland America March 2011

Last updated: 2012-03-06 11:28:00


I will be travelling on a cruise with Holland America March 2011 and will be stopping at 3 ports in Vietnam during the cruise.

Do I need a 30 day multiple trip visa or can I use 30 day single trip visa for both stops? 
I am a UK citizen with UK passport.  Could you please tell me whether I need to apply for a Visa before my trip.
Also I have read about applying on line with pick up of visa when arrive.  However it only mentions airports.  Does this apply to the cruise ship and can you get the visa at the cruise terminal when you get off the ship?
I will be stopping at the following ports
Phu My (for HoChi Min City)
Nha Trang
Halong Bay
Thank you

Application for Vietnam visa

Last updated: 2012-03-06 11:27:31

My husband and I wish to travel to Vietnam by road from Cambodia in January 2012.  As we are not arriving by air, we cannot apply for the 'visa on arrival' service.  We are UK citizens although we are resident in France.  Could you please let us know the most appropriate method for us to apply for Vietnam visas by post - either to UK or in France.
Thank you,
Christine Hallam

longer stay in Vietnam

Last updated: 2012-03-06 11:26:49

Hello, i have been many times in Vietnam for business and private reasons. 2 years ago I met a girl and since last year we are engaged. I am not sure when will we marry, but for the moment i am thinking to buy a small house. the house will be on my fiance's name. i am old enough, i know what i am doing and taking a risk by my free will. however, a question is: is there any way to stay, say, 6 months or longer for private reasons (tourist visa?) or there is only 3 months visa? If I have 3 months visa does it mean i can stay in Vietnam for 3 months? also (this is not your field, but just asking), in your experience, is there any problem we stay in the same apartment since we are not married? i heard some stories that police made problems for that and many other where there were no problems at all.
