To enter Vietnam foreigners need an entry visa which is usually issued at Vietnamese embassies and consulates abroad. Tourist visas can be applied for directly there. Business travellers should apply for a visa through the Vietnamese host. In our case, the local organizers of the conference should apply for a visa approval for their foreign guests at the Ministery of Public Security of Vietnam. After that, the relevant Vietnamese embassy or consulate will be informed of the approval by fax. We will notify you of the date of this fax as well as an approval number. You must then send (or bring in person)
to your Vietnamese embassy or consulate to obtain your visa. In general, some visa fees are charged (except the owners of an Official Passport or a Service Passport coming from such countries having appropriate contracts with Vietnam).
