Vietnam Visas and Celebrity ?

Recommended Posts

Anyone had experience regarding obtaining Vietnam visas onboard Celebrity?

Thier website says they provide , reservations are unclear and recommend getting ahead of time.

This is for Canadian and UK citizens.
 

I’ve also posted on the Asia ports boards..

 

thanks !

They've always handled our visas for us, but this is a different world. Currently:

To staunch the spread of COVID-19, Vietnam is not allowing entry or issuing visas to foreign nationals,

That is until further notice so no telling when things will resume.  We are scheduled to be in Vietnam again in February so are watching things closely.

On our cruise last year the visas were provided by the ship and the cost applied to our on board account.  I think it was $6/PP.  This assumes you aren't leaving the ship for overnight trips. In that case, I believe you need a different visa, but I could be wrong.

 

Of course,  currently, nobody is getting into Vietnam, and no one knows when that restriction will be lifted.

We were advised by tour company that the visa for staying off the ship overnight required a different visa than the one cruise ships normally issue.

We were on Azamara(part of the RCCL) last October. The ship provided Vietnam visas and it also was charged to our account. I think it was $6 for US citizens.

We stayed overnight on a Chinese Junk in Ha Long Bay; and the ship got us the visa for overnight - was about $30 instead of the normal $6.

This is the information given on board.
Note: The price might have changed a bit. The procedure is the same/was the same before shutdown.
