Question: Visa for Italian citizen

Hi there, I will travel to Vietnam from China on 1st October til 8th October for tourism. Do I need to get a visa in advance or can I get it upon arrival at the airport? I am an Italian citizen, is there any particular indication or procedure?

Looking forward to your prompt reply!

Best regards,

Dear Elisa,

Thank you for contacting us.

This is to inform that there are two common ways to apply visa to Vietnam as follows.

1. Apply Vietnam Visa at Vietnam Embassies/Consulates (effective for all citizens and all borders in Vietnam including airports, land or sea): You go to the Vietnam Embassy or Consulate aboard to apply the visa in person. Kindly contact them for detail requirement of each nationality in advance. Please visit here to find the nearest Embassy or Consulate of Vietnam in China.

2. Apply Vietnam Visa on Arrival (applicable for air travellers only): If you do not wish to go to the embassy to apply visa in person, you can consider visa on arrival. You just need to fill our online application form here and make payment. We will then proceed your visa application within1-2 working days only.
