TRANSPORT

From Noi Bai Airport to the conference venue

It takes approximately 50 minutes by car. Taxi is the most convenient vehicle. We suggest Noi Bai Taxi services (contact: +84945000908). It costs approximately 25 USD to take taxi from Noi Bai Airport to the conference venue (Thai Nguyen University of Economics and Business Administration).

Limousine Express Service is a good alternative. You may need to make a call as soon as you arrive at the airport to book a seat and wait for the car to pick you up at the terminal. It costs approximately 11 USD (140.000 VND) to take you to the conference venue. You may want to call different services to shorten your waiting time. Suggested services are Minh Anh Limousine (+84888 111 877), Newstar Limousine (+842086555999), Ha Lan Limousine (+842803737373 ).

City transport


City taxi is highly recommended. Mai Linh Taxi (+842086252525), Binh An Taxi (+842083545454) are reliable contacts.

VISA INFORMATION

Who need Visa to Vietnam?

Only citizens of certain countries can visit Vietnam without an entry visa. They include:

+ Most citizens of ASEAN member-countries including Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, and Lao citizens do not need a Vietnam visa if they are visiting the country within 30 days. Passport holders from the Philippines do not need a visa for 21 days. Brunei passport holders are not required to get a visa to Vietnam for 15 days. They could apply for popular passport type with return tickets. Citizens of Myanmar and Timor-Leste are all required Visa to Vietnam but they must have return tickets if they arrive to Vietnam via visa exemption.

+ Passport holders from Korea, Japan, Russia, Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Spain, Belarus and the Scandinavian nations (Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland) do not need a visa to Vietnam if they intend to stay in the country within 15 days but they must have return tickets if they arrive to Vietnam via visa exemption.

Therefore, the two groups above need to apply Vietnam visa if they want to stay the free period longer than prescribed.

All other citizens are required to get a Vietnam entry visa (issued prior to departure by local consulates or embassies) or a pre-approved letter for picking up an entry visa (issued on arrival at Vietnam’s International Airports) at the airport. Both are supplied before arrival in the country.

Other Exceptions:

+ No visa required for travel in Vietnam for less than 90 days or several visits within 6 months – Citizens of France holding valid diplomatic or official passports.

+ No Vietnam visa required for travel within 60 days – Citizens of Chile holding valid diplomatic or official passports.

+ No visa Vietnam required for 60 days/time with APEC Business Travel Card (ABTC) Holders from Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) member economies

+ Foreigners and Vietnamese nationals bearing foreign passports who enter Vietnam through an international border gate to travel to PhuQuoc Island and stay there for less than 15 days will also be exempted from Vietnam visa application. Passports must be valid for at least 45 days. After arriving on Phu Quoc Island, the Vietnamese Immigration Department will be responsible for issuing visas on the spot if visitors want to travel other localities or stay in the island for more than 15 days.

+ No visa required for Vietnamese overseas for less than 90 days staying if they are holding Vietnam visa exemption certificate.

Fee to get Vietnam Visa

In order to get your Vietnam visa, you should pay two kinds of fees: Service fee and Stamping fee 

1. Service fee

Service fee is the fee you pay to a service agent for doing all the paperwork for you to submit your visa application to the Vietnam Immigration Department for processing Visa Approval Letter.

2. Stamping fee

Stamping fee is the fee you pay directly to Immigration Officers in cash (at Immigration Desk/Counter) at your arrival airport in Vietnam to have visa stamped onto your passport. The fee is collected by the Immigration Officers and compulsory for all those who use visa on arrival method. The Stamping fee can be paid in USD or VND but USD is highly recommended to avoid any unexpected unbalanced exchange rates applied at the airport.
