Me and my partner are currently in Thailand and plan to travel to Laos and Cambodia in the coming weeks. We had planned to then travel to Ho Chi Minh City from Phnom Penh towards the end of April, however we have heard that the visa waiver program for UK citizens has been suspended and have also heard that you are no longer processing e-visa applications due to the corona virus. Could you advise us on whether we are still able to get an e-visa for Travel to Vietnam or whether this is not possible despite having been in South East Asia since the beginning of March?
Dear Evan Rees,
Thanks for your concern,
It is informed that due to the COVID-19 outbreak recently, The Vietnam Government will deny to issue visa on arrival or evisa for ALL NATIONALITIES (even if they already had the approval letter)
This decision will be effective from 12:00 (noon), 15 March 2020 for 30 days, and not be applicable to entrants for diplomatic or official purposes,
Please cancel your trip and wait until everything is getting better.
Stepfano Tran (Mr. )
