Get Vietnam visa on arrival from Singapore

Visa exemption

Hi, I hold a Singaporean passport and I would like to visit Ho Chi Minh City for 15 days. I have been told that I have a visa exemption. Do I need to present any documents of any sort upon arrival at the HCMC airport? How will I prove that I will be exiting the country within 30 days? Jay

Dear Jay,

Be kindly advised that you don’t need to present any documents upon Vietnam airport but a passport. 130day visa will be stamped in your passport and you are supposed to leave Vietnam before visa expiry.

Best regards,
