    Important Information

    Visas

    The Vietnamese Government have instated a visa exemption period for citizens of the UK who travel before 30/06/18. The visa exemption is valid for stays of up to 15 days in Vietnam. To be valid for the exception your passport must be valid for at least 6 months at the time of entry. Stays of longer than 15 days, stays beyond 30/06/18 or travellers undertaking multiple entries to Vietnam will still require a visa. We work closely with The Travel Visa Company who will be able to arrange this visa for you on your behalf. Please call them on 01270 250 590 and quote 'Mercury Holidays'. The cost of the visa is approximately £98.50. The visas take around 10 working days to issue and are only valid for three months from the date of entry. Therefore we recommend that you apply for your visa 8 weeks before travel, however, please be aware that your passport will be required for the application so make sure you will not need it during this time. Alternatively, you can visit the Embassy of Vietnam in London: 12-14 Victoria Road, London, W8 5RD. Travellers from countries other than the UK should contact the Embassy of Vietnam to check their status. If you choose to book the Temples of Cambodia extension before the Hoi An Beach Stay extension then you will require a multi entry visa for Vietnam.
