Dear Racine,


Thank you for contacting us.


This is to inform that under the new Vietnam Government Decree which takes effect from 1 July 2015, France passport holders are exempt for a Vietnam visa within 15 days single entry regardless of passport types and purpose of visit. The must-condition to enjoy the visa free is the new entry date is more than 30 days from the last exiting date in Vietnam. If the time distance is less than 30 days, you still need to apply for a visa.


Since you are planning to stay in Vietnam for less than 15 days, kindly check whether you have visited Vietnam within 30 days before this upcoming trip and if you need to apply for a visa, you can always contact us.


We look forward to hearing from you soon.


Best regards,


Samantha Hoang (Ms.)
