visa to enter Vietnam from Cruiser

Good afternoon, i am going on a cruise in January, the ship is to visit Ho Chi Minh City on one day the 19th, with one day at sea then a day in Chan May. I am a UK citizen living in UK. I understand I do not need a visa for one day but as I am returning on a second visit after one day do i require a Visa

Hi Michael,

You can enter Vietnam 14 days without visa, however, if you intend to re-enter Vietnam 30 days after your preceding visit, visa is required. You can contact with the nearest Vietnamese embassy to get an actual visa. Visa on arrival does not work for travel by cruise.
