Visa for stays up to thirty (30) days

Swiss citizens require a passport valid for at least six months beyond their departure date from Switzerland as well as an entry visa for Vietnam. Visa applications can be lodged personally or by post at the Embassy of Vietnam in Bern (minimum seven (7) working days before departure). In all cases, it is important that you carry a passport photograph and a “Visa approval letter” (to be obtained from the embassy at least three (3) weeks before departure) with you.

There is the option of applying for an express visa twenty-four (24) hours before collecting it in person at the Embassy of Vietnam in Bern. For additional information, please see the embassy’s website.

E-visa for Vietnam

For visits of up to 30 days, citizens of certain countries (for example Swiss citizens) can apply for an e-visa online. You must print out your e-visa as soon as you receive it and carry it in your hand luggage when you travel. Departure from Zurich Airport may be refused to passengers who cannot present their e-visa in paper form.
