Health Clearance Requirements for Travellers Entering Singapore or Vietnam

There are currently no major incidents to highlight. We advise Singaporeans travelling or living in Vietnam to take the necessary precautions and exercise personal responsibility at all times.

Entry and Exit

Singaporeans can visit Vietnam for up to 30 days without a visa. However, Vietnam has special requirements for persons who intend to reside for extended periods, or who plan to work, study, or engage in non-tourist activities. As visa requirements often change at short notice, we advise you to contact your travel agency, or the Embassy of Vietnam in Singapore for up-to-date information.

Onward travel from Vietnam to a different country may require you to hold a valid visa.  We advise Singaporeans to obtain a visa for onward travel, if needed, before the start of their journey, rather than apply for it en-route to your destination. Visas can be difficult to obtain at the border of the countries that they intend to visit after Vietnam.
