Transit foreigners can stay in Vietnam for 15 days

According to the Circular No. 44/2011/TT-BCA by the Ministry of Public Security, foreigners who transit at international airports and seaports across the country are allowed to stay in Vietnam within 15 days instead of only 5 days as indicated in the previous Decision on 19th December 2012.

In order to get a 15 day transit, visitors are required to have a tour program arranged by local travel agents before they arrive at international border gates.

Tourism firms have responsibility to get transit visas and to arrange tours for such visitors. It takes one working day only to get feedback from the immigration office for the request of tourism firms.

The stamp fee for transit visa is US$5, much lower than a normal tourist visa, which starts at US$45.
