What rights are needed in Vietnam

Are there in Vietnam Russian law, and what is needed

To 2014 for legal control car or motorbike in Vietnam is definitely was required to obtain a local rights, no foreign law was not recognized. But luckily, in 2014, Vietnam acceded to the Vienna Convention on road traffic (see more about Vienna Convention and how rights can be managed abroad), and now here it is possible to lawfully drive the vehicle on international driving permits (IDP). We only need to understand what is the correct IDP, which is suitable for traffic control in Vietnam.

All driving licenses are of two types:

  • National law. This is the usual Russian PAVA that gets every driver in Russia. They fully comply with the requirements of the Vienna Convention and apply in many countries but not yet in Vietnam.

  • International law or an international driving permit (IDP, also IDP – International Driving Permit). It's a different kind of driver's license, but rather complement national rights. It is made in the form of books in several languages, and is issued at the request of the driver. The IDP is valid only when presented together in the national rights. Such rights are in Vietnam.

  • Actually the official IDP there are several varieties, but in Vietnam only recognize those that meet the requirements of the Vienna Convention. And these are give in the Russian Federation. It is important to understand that this is not a certified translation or a document issued by the Association of motorists, even if it is an international organization. For traffic control in Vietnam you must have international driving permit issued by the state bodies of the Russian Federation is the traffic police. And don't forget that you need together with the IDP is always present and national law.

    Of course, it is impossible not to take into account local realities. Many police Vietnam still refuse to accept any because they do not know the new laws or pretend not know. You should be prepared for this situation and to keep up his innocence. It does not hurt to carry a printout of the following of the law on Vietnamese language:

    As to international law

    Obtaining an IDP in Russia is very simple. Arrange them as desired without re-examinations and medical certificates will only need to pay a fee. It is necessary to contact the traffic police or the DCP, fill out an application, pay a fee, and that's it. The fee is 1600 rubles (for 2018).

    You can also get an IDP through the portal of public services.Russia, which is much easier and cheaper. Data entry for applications to be made on the website and pay online, with a discount of 30%, i.e. you will have to pay only 1120 rubles instead of 1600 (for 2018). Then, to obtain ready the IDP will have to go to the traffic police at the scheduled time (choose a convenient time for yourself).

    What is the penalty for driving without a license

    The official fine for driving without a license is 800 000 - 1 200 000 VND, which is roughly equivalent to 35-52 U.S. dollar (see currency of Vietnam and the exchange rate). Plus it can confiscate the vehicle on the spot and send it to the impound lot for up to 7 days, for which you still have to pay the landlord, because his transport is idle. Of course, you can try to solve the problem on the spot bribe, and how to tell the reviews of the travelers usually do it, but even in this matter will have to bargain. But it's better not to risk and to issue the IDP.

    Do I need a license to rent a scooter or moped

    To control low-powered scooter or a moped in Vietnam is necessary to law. Moreover, your IDP should be a corresponding category A or A1. Category "M" the Vienna Convention is not provided, so it will not work. In the manufacture of any categories of your national rights are simply transferred, so if the category you have, it must first "open", and then to issue an international law.

Hello! Sorry for the delay in the approval of your "guest" question. Visa-free entry to Phu Quoc is possible only in the case of "You must arrive on a direct flight Phu Quoc (by plane or by ship) from another country.". Ie, in Cambodia you need to leave and get back on the plane or on the ship, but as far as I know no such flights. Therefore, the most reliable and easy way to get a visa invitation (worth $ 12) and on arrival at Phu Quoc island to obtain a multiple-entry visa on arrival at the airport (for Russians free). No problem going to Cambo for a tour and visa will return. ...

admin September 5, 2018
Hello Olesya! Yes, you can get a visa at the airport upon arrival, and for Russian citizens it is free. To get it, only need to first pay the visa invitation, which is done via the Internet. Here about it all painted in detail - https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/vietnam/visa-vo-vietnam. Read if I have questions, ask again. Regarding the verification of such a situation. Visas when arriving by ferry to Phu Quoc island from the mainland especially no one checks, there is no control, unless the raids what can happen. But the problem is that while on the mainland you are a violator of the law, and if your passport has been checked by the police, there will be serious problems. But even if the police will not collide with the host at any hotel even booking in advance you take the passport, check the availability of the stamps and in case of their absence report to the police. It's not because they are knocking like, just have in Vietnam a law that all tourists staying in hotels must register or something in this spirit. In short, the chances to get on the mainland without a visa there, and there's decide. ...
