Vietnam visa requirements for Latvian citizens

The Latvian tourists and businessmen are wondering if they need a visa to Vietnam or not. Here you can find the right answer for Vietnam visa requirements for Latvian citizens going to travel Vietnam in 2024.

Is Vietnam visa required for Latvian citizens?

"Yes, Latvian citizens do need a visa to enter Vietnam"

Latvia is one of the 26 European countries forming the Schengen area which have no border controls between them. However, visa is one of the many things for which Latvian citizens need to prepare before traveling to Vietnam.

"Visa ir tikai viena no daudzām lietām, par kurām jums sagatavoties pirms ceļojuma Vjetnama. Vjetnama imigrācijas politika reglamentē, ka gandrīz iedzīvotāji no valstīm ir jābūt Vjetnama vīza pirms ieceļošanas Vjetnamu, izņemot vīzas atbrīvoto valstu iedzīvotājiem. Jūs esat apmierināti, lai pārbaudītu, ja Jums ir Vjetnama vīzu atbrīvoti iedzīvotāji, vai jums ir pienākums būt Vjetnama vīza vai Vjetnama apstiprinājuma vēstule pirms ierašanās Vjetnamu. Tas saglabās jūs prom no daudzām nepatikšanām laikā jūsu ierakstu."
