Vietnam visa for volunteers


Hi there,

My partner and I are going to volunteer in Vietnam for a few months in early 2014. We will probably be there for about 3 months but I was wondering what kind of visas we will need to get?

From looking around I have found that we will need a business visa because what we will be doing is technically ‘work’ but other places have told me other wise.

Can anyone please advise what kind of visas we will need?




Dear Maddier,

We believe that being a volunteer you aren’t paid for what you are doing or your income might be from organization outside of Vietnam. In this case, a business visa (3 month single or multiple entry visa) is quite appropriate.

Best regards,


Share and Enjoy
