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 Ministry of Public Security of Vietnam.
After that, a 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)
- your passport
- approval number and date of fax
- two passport photos
to your Vietnamese embassy or consulate to obtain your visa. In general, some
visa fees are charged.
For this application, we need the following information about each foreign
participant and his/her accompanying persons as well:
Deadline for submission of data to apply for a business visa through the
Vietnamese organizers is January 6, 2006. After that, participants should apply
for a tourist visa directly at Vietnamese embassies.
