Information current as of January 2015.

Phu Quoc island in Vietnam is a special economic zone, and there is a special visa conditions that are different from the rest of the country. If you arrive on Phu Quoc island for tourism purposes for up to 30 days, the visa you do not need. This applies to citizens of all countries, not just citizens of Russia. Upon arrival at Phu Quoc island, you just get a stamp in the passport (Visa Exemption Stamp) for the period of stay of 30 days. Sometimes, instead of a stamp glued sticker full page of a passport similar to a visa. Of course, to take advantage of this easing visa, you must comply with some conditions:

  • Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date of entry.
  • The period of stay on Phu Quoc island should be no more than 30 days.
  • You must have return tickets or tickets to a third country.
  • During your stay in Phu Quoc, you should not visit other cities of Vietnam (should be only on the island).
  • You must arrive on a direct flight Phu Quoc (by plane or by ship) from another country. It is also possible the arrival of a flight with a stopover in Ho Chi Minh city or Hanoi, but with the proviso that at Phu Quoc island you will depart from the international terminal.

Unfortunately, this stamp is valid only on the territory of the island, and beyond him you can not leave. If you want to travel to mainland Vietnam from Phu Quoc island, you will need to obtain a visa that can be done right here on the island, having addressed in travel Agency.

You can also get a visa on arrival at the international airport of Fukuoka on the same terms as in the other international airports of Vietnam. Recall that for the Russians visa on arrival to Vietnam is issued free of charge.

Good day!
Tell me, Pete, we have the flight Moscow-Hanoi-Nha Trang duration of the trip less than 15 days... what we first arrive in Hanoi and then in Nha Trang is not that we are 2 times enter the country during the visa period?
I understand that the second flight is within a single state, but I want to play it safe and to hear a clear YES that it is not considered a double entry))
And the second question - whether the entry of children, the consent of the spouse (therefore he was not flying with us)... somewhere I saw info, that you need a notarized consent... If Yes, what language should it be presented?
Thank you in advance!!!! ...

Regarding permission for children old Banny nonsense. If anyone needed permission, so that our border guards at the check-out, and is also an old accordion. In fact, our guards need notarized authorization power of attorney only if the child leaves the country alone or accompanied by guardians or relatives but not the parents, but if one of the parents that niceone need and do not listen to from anyone this nonsense, and that ponapisyvali of nonsense in ...

Went with my son, on the border only took the birth certificate of the child, although it was not. Somehow we agreed to propustili. The son then was 3.5 years, talking bad, a half hour, he was questioned about the mother. So it is better to take it with you. But from the second parent does not need anything, well unless you fly to Europe... ...

Hello! Flew for the first time in Vietnam, Nha Trang. Rented bike. KFS, parked next to a bunch of other bikes. Walked around the neighborhood for half an hour, returned my bike, and others on the ground there. Rented a bike from the owner of the apartment that she rented. He phoned the owner of the bike and eventually said that on Monday (since Sunday is day off) I have to go to the police with the owner of the bike for the proceedings. Do you have information what are the penalties for Parking in the wrong place? Prohibition signs were not... were markings for Parking of cars, perhaps the essence of it. The driver's license of the international sample I have, for this, I believe, just fine... ...

About penalties here - https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/vietnam/art-shtrafi-za-pdd-vo-vietname. As for the lack of an IDP, then the question is moot. After all, if you look purely legally that you can't write,because of the fact that you were driving the vehicle without WU there. So it all depends on your ability to stretch and to explain, I guess. try to include "idiot" and to say that lost yesterday, WU and therefore the transport left in the Parking lot, for example. In General, as the owner of the bike will be with you, I think without problems will solve everything, but as the host you created additional problems, he will ask you to pay rent for all days of downtime a motorbike.
PS If not difficult, write a review then the results of the solution of the problem. ...
