HoChiMinh City (HCMC) - Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine
- To enter Vietnam, you will need a valid passport with at least six months validity remaining and a Vietnamese visa, a visa
exemption document, or a written approval letter for a visa upon arrival. You may obtain a visa or a visa exemption document
from a Vietnamese embassy or consulate prior to traveling to Vietnam. To obtain a written approval letter to enter, you must
contact a travel agency prior to departure. U.S. citizens have reported unscrupulous travel agencies taking advantage of travelers
and charging extremely high fees upon landing.
- Please be aware that Vietnam has two fees: 1) the visa fee and 2) the visa processing fee. The visa fees are sometimes posted
on the Vietnamese Embassy's website, but U.S. Embassy and Consulate officials have received reports of processing fees
varying from one applicant to another and from one issuing entity to another. The US State Department has brough this concern
to the attention of Vietnamese officials, but the problem persists.
