We’re happy to inform that from August 11th 2017, Chilean passport holders traveling to Vietnam will be exempted from the visa requirement, and Vietnamese coming to Chile will enjoy the same story!

The Consular Department under the Vietnam Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the agreement between the two Governments of Vietnam and Chile, on visa exemption for holders of ordinary passports (signed in October 17, 2016) has taken effect from August 11, 2017.

Chilean holders of ordinary passports with a validity of at least six months are subject to a visa-free stay in Vietnam shorter than 90 days upon entry through international border gates.

The visa waiver will not apply to those:
  • Wanting to stay in Vietnam to generate income
  • Wanting to stay for more than 90 days
If Chilean citizens in these situations wishing to get a Vietnam visa or, they can select one of 2 methods:
  1. Apply Vietnam Visa On Arrival (highly recommend)
  2. Apply  Vietnam Embassy visa
So until now, Viet Nam now waives visas for travelers from 24 countries and territories. From this 1 February, the Government started piloting e-visas for citizens of 40 countries and territories in Asia, Europe and America.
