Special Exemptions
APEC Business Travel Card (ABTC) holders economies may visit Vietnam for less than 60 days.

For those who wish to stay in Vietnam longer than the exemption duration, they are advised to apply for a visa by one of two following ways:
– Contact the most convenient Vietnam Embassy (traditional way to obtain a visa to Vietnam);
– Apply online for a visa approval letter to get visa stamped at the arrival airport in Vietnam (applicable for air travelers to Vietnam only).
But for those who visit enter Vietnam through an international border gate and then travel to Phu Quoc Island and wish to stay there for over 30 days or wish to travel to other localities, they will get the visa issued right on the spot by the Immigration Department.
