United Kingdom

My partner and I will be travelling through Vietnam later this month as part of a tour. We will be travelling through the country for 12 days. I understand that with a British passport you do not need a visa if you are not staying for more than 15 days, does the same apply for an Irish passport?

Also, we will be crossing through a land border from Cambodia, not flying in.

Dear Lucy,

Thanks for your question

We would like to inform that the UK passport holders are granted a visa-exempt stay of 15 days with single entry. 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.

Irish passport holders need visa to enter VIETNAM so please apply evisa at this link
