  1. Check Vietnam visa exemption information for India citizens

Currently, India people who come to Vietnam for any purpose (tourism, business, study, etc.) must apply for a visa. Without a visa, you will not be allowed to enter Vietnam. However, there are exceptions.

Are India citizens exempted from visa to Vietnam?

According to a decree issued by the Vietnamese Prime Minister in 2015, citizens of all countries in the world entered Phu Quoc Island (without transiting at any other domestic airports in Vietnam), only staying on this island (without going to any other areas of Vietnam), for less than 30 days, will be exempt from visa.
