US passport holders have REQUIRED a visa to visit Vietnam for any purpose such as tourism, business, working, visiting relatives, holiday… But US citizens can visit Phú Quốc Island without a visa for up to 30 days. You must arrive at Phú Quốc Island directly from a third country, or from airports in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City where they will clear immigration and proceed to the domestic terminals.
