Is Visa needed for stopover

Jan 20, 2020
Hi! I am travelling from Germany to Australia (1 way) with a 16 hr stop over in Vietnam. do I need a visa if I want to leave the airport to see the city for a couple hours, if I have a valid German passport (longer than 6m expiration)?

Dear  Larissa Phung, 


Vietnam offers 15-day visa exemptions with single entry for visitors from Germany. However, their

passports should have at least six months of validity upon the date of arrival to meet airlines’

requirements, and their arrival date is NOT within 30 days from their last exit date with visa exemption.

Otherwise, they will need a Vietnam visa.

If you stay more than 15 days please apply for Vietnam visa
