Vietnam extends the UK visitor’s visa-free period from 15 to 45 days.

With effect from 15 August 2023, holders of UK passports may enter Vietnam without a visa for a maximum of 45 days, a threefold extension of the previous maximum of 15 days. Currently, British citizens do not need to apply for a visa to enter Vietnam for up to 15 days for transit, business, or tourism (but not for paid or volunteer work). Instead of the previous maximum of 30 days, British visitors staying longer can now apply for an e-visa using the internet portal and stay for up to 90 days. 

In addition, the extended e-visa is now good for numerous entries rather than just one. Vietnam requires travellers to apply for a pre-approved visa letter through a travel/visa agency in order to get the visa stamp upon arrival, in contrast to other nearby nations like Cambodia and Thailand, where visas can be obtained upon landing at border gates. 

The planned improvements to visa-free travel and e-visas will greatly increase the flexibility of travel for British visitors to Vietnam and other nations in the diverse region of Southeast Asia, according to a representative for Vietnam Airlines. British tourists with several destinations will be able to visit Vietnam, continue to other countries, and then come back if they want to see more of our stunning country. 

With our nonstop flights from London Heathrow to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, as well as our broad network of direct connections to other important cities within Vietnam, Asia, and Australia, Vietnam Airlines will be there for them every step of the way.
