Japanese passport holders have exempted an entry visa for a stay of a maximum of 15 days in Vietnam. It should be noted, after your 1st visa exemption period, you have to wait outside Vietnam for at least 30 days to get the next visa exemption period. Therefore, Japanese citizens have to apply for a visa to Vietnam when you want to spend more than 15 days in this country or a gap between two visa-free is less than 30 days.
Until this time, the best ways for Japanese passport holders to get a Vietnam visa, only for those who travel by air, are applying for a Vietnam Visa on arrival airport.
