Hi. I’m Carolyn, a British citizen currently living in Cambodia. I will be traveling to Phu Quoc via Ha Tien border next weekend for one week and am not sure whether I will need a visa for Vietnam or not. Please could you let me know. Many thanks.

Dear Carolyn,

Please be informed that foreigners who enter, exit from, and reside in Phu Quoc island, for a stay period not exceeding 30 days shall be exempted from Vietnam visas. Since you just travel to Phu Quoc Island and stay there for about one week, you also do not need a visa for Vietnam. But in case after coming to Phu Quoc island, you wish to travel to other localities, the entry and exit management body shall consider and grant visa to you right in Phu Quoc island.

Full picture about Vietnam visa exemption for Phu Quoc island can be found here.

We hope this information is clear to you.

Wish you all good things,
