Does Indonesian Citizens Need Visa for Entering Vietnam or Not?

Indonesia is one of the countries which is Visa exempted in Vietnam for a period of less than 30 days. So if you are an Indonesian citizen and wish to travel to Vietnam, you can easily do so without applying for Visa and stay in Vietnam for a period less than 30 days. However, if you wish to stay in Vietnam for more than 30 days, you will have to apply for Visa. There are two ways in which an Indonesian citizen can apply for Visa to Vietnam. 

The first is by applying through the embassy of Vietnam in Indonesia. You can get in touch with the officials in the Vietnam embassy who will take you through a step by step procedure for filling up the necessary forms and making the required payments. You will require a few documents if you are approaching the embassy for your Visa application. You will have to have a valid passport with six months validity, recent passport size photographs, one self-addressed envelope. All these documents will be submitted along with your Visa application form.
