Vietnam visa for Russians via border gates on land


I am Russian citizens and I understand that I do not need visa to enter Vietnam if I stay in the country less than 15 days. However, I am planning to travel to Vietnam in December this year, and I will be crossing border and entering Vietnam by bus coming from Cambodia. Will I need to apply for Vietnam visa then?



Hi Zarah,

Be kindly advised that the Russian citizens will not need a visa to enter Vietnam at any border gates on land, sea ports or airport provided that they will stay in Vietnam less than 15 days.

For those, who plan to stay in Vietnam longer (1 month or 3 months), Vietnam visa is required. However, Russian citizens are not obliged to pay the stamping fee then.

Best regards,
