Travel Requirements for Travellers Entering Singapore or Vietnam

Singaporeans travelling or living in Vietnam should 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.


Travel Requirements for Singapore Travellers to Vietnam

Vietnam has temporarily suspended entry of all foreigners and overseas Vietnamese via commercial flights into Vietnam.  Vietnam may grant entry visas to foreigners with diplomatic and official passports; and certain investors, business managers, experts and high-skilled workers, on a case-by-case basis.

Singaporeans who are allowed to enter Vietnam will have to (i) present a negative RT-PCR COVID-19 test results within three to seven days prior to arrival in Vietnam; (ii) ensure that one has the appropriate health insurance coverage or the commitment of investing agencies/organisations to pay the treatment fee should one be infected with COVID-19; (iii) serve a 14-day quarantine at centralised facilities; (iv) undergo at least two mandatory COVID-19 swab tests; and (v) submit an online health declaration at prior to arrival and provide the necessary assurances that the individual(s) will comply with all local health and immigration regulations.
