You must have a valid passport and a visa (or pre-approval for a visa on arrival or a visa exemption certificate) to enter Vietnam. Your passport must be valid for six months beyond your planned stay, and you must have at least one blank visa page.

Some travellers with e-visas have reported having to pay a second visa fee on arrival because of differences between their passport and e-visa application. Make sure you correctly enter your details when applying. Print a copy of your application and carry it with you.

If you're planning to stay longer than 30 days or require multiple entries, you'll need to apply for a visa directly from the nearest Embassy or Consulate of Vietnam. Complete the visa application form online, then print it and take it to the nearest Embassy or Consulate of Vietnam. If you arrive in Vietnam with a written approval letter for a visa to be issued on arrival, you'll need to pay the fee in cash, either in US dollar or Vietnamese dong. Check whether you will require a single entry or multiple entry visa.

If your spouse or parent is a national of Vietnam, you can apply for a visa exemption certificate. The certificate is valid for five years and allows multiple entries into Vietnam for up to six months.

If your visa expires or is otherwise no longer valid, you will face delays and fines when leaving.

You cannot change the status of your entry visa (such as tourist visa or spouse visa) to any other visa type (such as a working visa) in-country.

To obtain a visa extension from the Vietnamese immigration authorities (including for overstaying your visa), your passport must have at least six months validity remaining at the time of application.

There are value and quantity restrictions on the import and export of prescription medicines.

And 'addictive medicine' (used for the treatment of addiction). Prescriptions and medicines must be shown to customs.

Vietnam has health screening for all inbound travellers. All foreigners must register their place of residence with the local police within 24 hours of arrival. The Australian Embassy and Consulate-General can't provide translation services to assist with registration.

If you stay at a hotel, confirm you'll be registered as part of the normal check-in process. They'll need your passport details.

Many hotels ask foreigners to leave their passport with hotel staff for registration purposes. It isn't a legal requirement for hotels to retain your passport for the duration of your stay.

If you stay with family, friends or in another private residence, you'll need to register at the local police station, with a translator if needed.

Local hosts need to pre-register foreign guests – if you stay in a private residence, make sure your host has satisfied this legal requirement.

By law, you must use only one passport for your entry, exit, transit and residence in Vietnam.

Make sure your passport is valid for at least six months after the date you intend to return to Australia. If your passport has less than six months, validity, you could be refused, or may not be permitted to board your flight.

Your passport is a valuable document and attractive to criminals who may try to use your identity to commit crimes. Always keep it in a safe place.
