I am citizen of Russia, visiting Halong, Danang and Hoshimin by cruise, Is Vietnam visa necessary for me?
Dear Mr. Dmitry,
Thank you for contacting us.
Be kindly informed that citizens of Russia is exempted for Vietnam visa for a stay of up to 15 days. But for a stay of more than 15 days, they are required to apply for a Vietnam visa. So, please consider your case to make the decision. And in case you stay in Vietnam for more than 15 days and enter Vietnam by cruise, you should apply for Vietnam visa at the nearest Vietnam Embassy because Vietnam visa on arrival is applied to those travelling to Vietnam by air only.
We hope this information is clear to you.
Wish you all good things.
