I will be flying to Ho Chi Minh this coming Sept. I am holding a Filipino passport do I need to apply for a Vietnam visa? My flight will be from Manila to Siem reap then going to Ho Chi Minh. Just two days in Ho Chi Minh for our vacation. Thanks. Rosette 


Dear Rosette,

We would like to confirm that the Philippines passport holders are exempted from Vietnam visa for 21 days. Therefore, you don’t have to apply for visa for 2 day stay in Vietnam. 

You only NEED to get a visa for Vietnam in case you wish to stay in Vietnam for more than 21 consecutive days. In this case, please check how to get Vietnam visa for Filipinos here

Whether you enter Vietnam with visa or not, before you go, please make sure that your Philippines passport is valid for at least 6 months following your date of entry into Vietnam and has at least 02 blank pages for immigration stamps.

Hopefully this information is clear to you.

Wish you all the best,
