With its rich history, vibrant culture, and breathtaking landscapes, it’s no wonder that the country has become a popular choice for tourists. And now, for citizens of Germany, there’s even more reason to pack their bags and head to Vietnam. Starting from August 15, 2023, citizens of Germany can enjoy a visa-free stay of 45 days, thanks to an update in Vietnam’s unilateral visa-free program.
Extended Visa-Free Stay
Under the amendments to the Law of Foreigners’ Entry into, Exit from, Transit through, and Residence in Vietnam, citizens of Germany, along with other countries and regions eligible for Vietnam’s visa-free program, will be able to stay in Vietnam for a longer period of time. Previously limited to just 15 days, the visa-free stay for citizens of Germany has now been extended to 45 days. This means that travelers from Germany can immerse themselves in the beauty and wonders of Vietnam for nearly a month and a half, without the need for a visa.

Extended E-Visa Validity
In addition to the extended visa-free stay, citizens of Germany also have the option to apply for a 90-day e-visa if they wish to stay in Vietnam for a longer period.
