M3 Vietnam Entry and Exit Form (On Arrival Form)
What is Vietnam entry and exit form?
Vietnam entry and exit form (M3/ On Arrival Form) is a form handed out to foreign passengers before they go through the customs of Vietnam airport. After filling in the form, foreigners need to return it to the Immigration Officers who will stamp Vietnam visa on their passport. To save time, travelers can download the form and fill it in advance here.
Note: The note below On Arrival Form is somewhat out of date these days. Although it indicates that 2 forms are required to be presented, you only need to fill in one form and submit it to Immigration Officers directly at Vietnam airport.
