do i need a visa?

I hear that if I am not been a canadian over 5 years, I don't need visa to come to Vietnam even though I use canadian passport. Is it right? I just become canadian in 2 years. My vietnamese passport expried so I need to use canadian passport to visit vietnam. Do I need a visa to vietnam?

No, it is not correct. If you are holding a valid Canada passport, you need to apply a visa before go back to Vietnam. However, if you are Vietnamese origin , you are eligible for the 5 year visa exemption.

Vietnamese government is the only agent who has authority to issue this visa exemption certificate, you will need to contact them for help, happily you can do it online here:

Hope this help!
