Does Belgium citizens need visa for entering Vietnam or not?

Yes, citizens of Belgium need to have a valid visa for making trips to Vietnam. The two nations have great democratic bonds but so far, the nations have not entered into any reciprocal agreements with respect to their visa policies. Hence, Belgium citizens need to obtain a visa for entry into Vietnam even for the shortest duration and vice versa. Although, keeping in mind the democratic relations, Vietnam has still given certain exemptions to the Belgium citizens that are as follows :-

1) All the Belgium citizens who are in possession of a diplomatic or official passport are entitled to avail an exemption of a maximum period of 90 days. If the official wants to extend the stay, then he would need a valid visa.

2) Any Belgium citizen who is a spouse or a child to a Vietnamese citizen, then he or she can apply for a visa exemption. After completing all the documentation successfully, the citizen can avail an exemption for as long as 5 years.

3) In addition, if you are a Belgium based Vietnamese citizen then also you are entitled to apply for a visa exemption. You will need to submit all the relevant documents showing your Vietnamese status and you can get an exemption of up to 5 years.

4) The children under 14 years of age, who are sharing their passports with their parents, are entitled for an exemption. The child does not need a separate visa in this scenario. If the child has a separate passport, then a separate visa will be required.

5) To promote tourism, Vietnam has also given an exemption to all the Belgium citizens who are planning to make a trip to the famous Phu Quoc islands. Such travelers are allowed to enjoy a visa free stay of up to 30 days. However, if the traveler wishes to go beyond the island or stay on the island for more than 30 days then a valid visa will be required.

These are some of the exemption criteria laid down by the Vietnamese Visa Policy. It is advisable to thorough yourself with all the exemptions available before going ahead with the visa application. The citizens of Belgium can obtain visas through two means. First is to approach the Vietnam embassy and the second is to approach online agents like us for a visa on arrival (VOA).
