Arrival regulations

Immigration

Depending on your purpose of stay and nationality, a visa may be required, so please check in advance.

If you need to apply for a visa

  • It is possible to apply for a visa upon arrival, but only if you have obtained a visa acquisition approval beforehand. (However, it can be inconvenient to obtain a visa upon arrival, so we recommend obtaining one in advance.)
  • If you do not have a visa, you will be subjected to forced repatriation (deportation).

Vietnam visa exemption for Japanese passport holders

  • There are several conditions attached to traveling without a visa, including being in possession of a return ticket or e-ticket receipt.
  • Please contact the Vietnamese embassy for further information.

Customs

After collecting your checked baggage, please proceed to the Customs counter. Passengers with items to declare must complete a customs declaration form and hand it to a customs official along with their passport. If there are any omissions on the form, you may be questioned by the official. Please be aware that checks on precious metals, cameras, and videos are particularly strict.  All baggage will be X-rayed. If you are making a foreign currency declaration, please accurately record the currency type and amount (only required if you have US$5,000 equivalent or more, including gold, silver, precious stones, etc.). Communications equipment cannot be brought in without obtaining prior permission from the Vietnam Ministry of Information and Communications .

Pets

Prior reservation is necessary if you wish to bring your pet, as the transportation environment within the aircraft needs to be prepared.
