Question: Visa exemption for Italian citizen


I’m an Italian citizen and I’ll visit Vietnam from 20 august to 3 semptember, but, in these period I’ll go to Cambodia too (from 29 to 31 august).

So the questions are:

1. Should I pay a SINGLE ENTRY VISA at my first arrival (and it’s valid for 30days, including exit to cambodia and re-enter to ho chi minh)

2. Should I pay a SINGLE ENTRY VISA when I will enter for the second times in vietnam (from Cambodia to Vietnam), and my first enter from Italy it’s free.

3. Should I pay a MULTIPLE entry visa?

Can you you help me please?

Thank you in advance for you prompt reply

Hi Ricky,

Thank you for contacting us.

We would like to confirm that as an Italian passport holder, you are exempted for Vietnam visa within 15 days, single entry as long as the previous time you visited Vietnam without visa was at least 30 days before 20 Aug 2016.

We would like to summarize your schedule as follows:

- 20 Aug: arrive Vietnam

- 29 Aug: leave Vietnam for Cambodia

- 31 Aug: re-enter Vietnam

- 3 Sep: exit Vietnam

Based on your itinerary, if you meet the mentioned condition, we confirm that you can use your visa exemption right for either the first or second entry and only need a single entry visa for the other. For your case, we recommend you to use a 1 month-single entry visa for the first arrival from Italy, and come back to Vietnam from Cambodia using free visa.

Kindly confirm us your decision and send us your passport scan so that we could support you further on your application for Vietnam visa on arrival.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,

Hayley Nguyen (Ms.)
