Vietnam visa requirement for Russian

I am Russian and I heard that Russian citizens no need to apply visa for Vietnam, is it correctly ?

According to Decision No. 3207/2008/QD-BNG approved and signed on 10 December 2008 by the head of Vietnam Foreign Affairs Ministry, citizens of the Russian Federation bearingordinary passports are exempt from visa when entering and exiting Vietnam regardless of their entry purposes within 15 days from the date of entry.

How to get Vietnam visa in Russia?

Russians citizens need a Vietnam visa in order for them to enter Vietnam. There are two main ways by which they can acquire their Vietnam visa for Russian as outlined below:

– By direct application to the Vietnam embassy/consulate in Russia.
– By online means of application for the Vietnam visa through our services.

Direct application for the Vietnam visa for Russian from the Vietnam embassy.

Russian citizens can always access the Vietnam embassy in their country anytime within business hours to make their visa application or even to get information about the requirements and procedures that entail the process. They may also contact this embassy in person, by email or by presenting themselves in person to make their application for the Vietnam visa.

However, if one feels so inconvenienced by having to travel to the Vietnam embassy to apply for their visa to Vietnam, they may as well opt for the Vietnam visa by post service. In this way, they will first have to communicate with the Vietnam embassy to find out if the service is offered there.

Here is all contact information to reach the Vietnam embassy:
