If you live in Australia and are looking for an interesting and culturally rich vacation destination, consider visiting Vietnam. This country has attractions for every traveler, cheap hotels, delicious food and a welcoming culture. The high exchange rate of Australian Dollar (1 AUD = ~ 18,300 VND) and the number of reasonably priced flights to Vietnam have increased the number of Australians traveling to Vietnam in recent years. Some even say that Vietnam is now the new Thailand, as Vietnam offers a similar Southeast Asian experience to Thailand at a much lower cost.

Plan to go from Australia to Vietnam

Australian travelers to Vietnam can choose their flights from a variety of airlines, including Air Asia, Malaysia Airlines, Scoot, Vietnam Airlines, Cathay Dragon, Singapore Airlines and Jetstar Asia. Most travelers from Australia will fly to Ho Chi Minh City, as it is the southernmost airport choice and is usually less expensive than other Vietnamese airports. However, sometimes travelers can also get convenient and cheap flights to Hanoi and Da Nang.

Vietnam Visa Requirements

Before your trip, make sure your passport is up to date and you have applied for a visa to enter Vietnam. As a citizen of Australia, you must have a visa before entering Vietnam. Vietnam issues visas to Australian citizens on arrival. However, the visa application process will be much easier if an Australian passport holder applies for a Vietnam visa online. When you are ready to apply for your visa online, please provide the following information:

  • Your name is exactly what you find on your passport: Note that their order and your first name doesn't matter.
  • Your Date of Birth: The correct date format is DD / MM / YY.
  • Your nationality: Use the nationality indicated on your passport.
  • Your passport number: Make sure the number you provide exactly matches the number in your passport.
  • Arrival date: Travelers must indicate their intended date of arrival when submitting their Vietnam visa application. Note that you can choose to enter Vietnam later or later than the date of entry of the official visa approval letter, but not sooner.

Also, please ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months after your arrival date and that you have a blank page left for your Vietnam visa stamp.

How much does a Vietnam visa cost a traveler?

To get a Vietnam visa, you will have to pay both the approval mail service and the visa stamp fee. You can pay the approval letter service fee directly for the Vietnam visa application service, but you will have to pay in cash for the stamp fee upon arrival in Vietnam. In general, most Vietnamese visas cost less than 100 AUD and we accept most major credit cards. To learn more about the Vietnam visa fees for each visa type, see our dedicated page titled, “How Much Does It Cost to Apply for a Vietnam Visa?
