I am planning to come to Vietnam in March 2020, but I am really confused about Vietnam visa. I heard that Vietnam visa is closed for Hong Kong citizens in January, but some people said that it’s opened again. What is the truth? Can Hong Kong citizens apply Vietnam visa and come to Vietnam in March?
The end of January and beginning of February 2020, the rule of Vietnam visa for Hong Kong citizens changed a few times. In the effort to stop the outbreak of Corona virus, Vietnam government has restricted visa policy for Hong Kong citizens. At the beginning, all Chinsese people, including Hong Kong and Macao passport holders are not allows to apply Vietnam visa. All types of Vietnam visa are stopped for Hong Kong people. After a couple of weeks, Hong Kong people are allowed to apply visa on arrival, but for 1-month visa only. Then the other option of Vietnam visa on arrival are opened again for Hong Kong citizens. At the middle of February, Vietnam electronic visa is opened again for Hong Kong citizens. And after that, all Vietnam visa options (included tourist and business visa) are come back as before. Until now, Hong Kong passport holder can apply Vietnam visa normal as what it is before.
