Question: Entry into Vietnam from China
I want to ask about when I want entry into Vietnam from China with the Vietnam Visa on Arrival. Is it possible to fly directly from China or I must go two the third country and fly to Vietnam? Thank you very much.

Dear Euphie Feng,
Thank you for contacting us.
We would like to confirm that in the past, China passport holders flying to Vietnam from China mainland, Hong Kong and Macau might be asked to have a visa stamped on their passports prior to their departure and they might not be allowed to board their flight to Vietnam using visa on arrival.
However, we have been recently informed by our Chinese customers that this policy has now changed and with the letter of approval from the Vietnamese Inbound, China border authorities allow Chinese citizens to fly to Vietnam's three international airports (including Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang). Please click here for further information. Our Chinese customers have been using visa on arrival to travel from China to Vietnam since then.
If you are Chinese, Hong Kong or Macau passport holder, it is strongly advised that you should check with your airline again to know for sure whether you will be able to fly to Vietnam using visa on arrival. If yes, we are willing to support you to get Vietnam visa on arrival.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Best regards,Vietnam visa service
