Do Ethiopian citizens need visa for entering Vietnam or not?

Yes, every Ethiopian needs to have a valid visa to make an entry into Vietnam. There are, although, a few exceptions to this rule that have been decided by the Visa policies of these two nations. Firstly, if your spouse or parents are Vietnamese citizens then you can apply for a Visa exemption for up to 5 years by completing a few formalities. In addition, if you are an Ethiopian based Vietnamese citizen than also, you can avail a visa exemption, but again, you need to complete the necessary paper work. In addition, if you have an Ethiopian diplomatic passport then Vietnam gives you an exemption of up to 90 days. Aspirers travelling to the popular Phu Quoc islands can avail an exemption of up to 30 days. For all the other citizens, visa is a must.

Vietnam is a nation that is situated in the Indo-China peninsula and is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. It has been estimated that by the year 2025, Vietnam will have the greatest GDP in the world. As a result, people from all over the world are attracted to this place. Hundreds of people visit Vietnam for different purposes like business, tourism, diplomatic work etc. There are several nations, on the global map, that have received a visa exemption from Vietnam, but for all the others, a visa is a compulsion.

Usually for every nation, there are at least two ways in which they can obtain a visa for Vietnam. First is through the official Vietnamese embassy located in the country and the other through online services providing visa on arrivals i.e. VOAs. However, when it comes to Ethiopia, it is not that simple. 

Although, Vietnam has democratic relations with more than 170 nations and an embassy in over 70 countries, Ethiopia is still not one of them. As if now, Ethiopia does not have a Vietnam embassy that can look after the visa requirements of the people here. Under such a scenario, this is what you can do.

Apply through the nearest embassy:

Since Ethiopia does not have an embassy, the citizens here can apply for a visa through the Vietnamese embassies located in the neighboring nations. Once you have located an embassy, you can apply for a Vietnamese visa through mail. This might be more time consuming, hence, plan your trip keeping in mind the time in hand.

Some of the nearby nations that have a Vietnamese embassy are Egypt, Mozambique, Angola, Libya, Iran, Tanzania, and Nigeria. Each embassy has its own working policy so get in touch with them to find out the most ideal one for you.

Apply for VOA:

A Visa on arrival is a good option if you will be making an air journey to Vietnam. This visa is a high recommendation if you are going to land at the major airports in Vietnam. You can apply for it online and get the visa stamped once you land at the Vietnamese airport. If you want to make a land or water trip then embassy is the only option.
