Does Czech citizens need visa for entering Vietnam or not?
Yes, Czech citizens need to have a valid Vietnamese visa to make a trip to the nation. The Vietnam visa policy clearly states all the rules and guidelines related to any kind Vietnam travel. As per this policy, people from Czech need to have a visa for any kind of trips to Vietnam. However, Vietnam being a nation oriented towards democratic bonds, has laid down various criteria falling under which the citizens of Czech can avail a visa exemption. The following are some of the major exemption rules:
1) All the Czech official and diplomatic passport holders have been allowed a visa free entry provided their stay is not extending for more than 90 days. If the official needs to stay for more than 90 days, a valid visa will be required.
2) The citizens of Czech who are children or spouses to present Vietnamese citizens have been granted a visa exemption for a maximum duration of up to 5 years provided they submit all the documents establishing their relationship, to the authorities.
3) In addition, the policy has also given the foreign-based Vietnamese a benefit of visa exemption. This means that Czech based Vietnamese citizens can avail a visa exemption of up to 5 years provided, the citizen presents to the immigration department all the required documents.
4) Another exemption rule talks about the Czech children less than 14 years of age. If these children share their passports with their parents, then there is no need for a separate visa. If the child has his own passport then a visa is essential.
5) In order to promote tourism, the Vietnamese government has extended a visa exemption to the travelers. People aiming for the Phu Quoc islands, are given a visa free stay of max 30 days. If they wish to leave the island or stay on the island for more than 30 days then they will need to apply for a valid visa.
In addition to these, there are several other exemption rules. Hence, before applying for a visa get in touch with the embassy to understand these rules. The citizens of Czech have two major routes for applying for a visa. The first is the direct authority of the embassy and the second is the immigration department issuing a VOA through online agents like us.
