Entry & Custom Procedures

As soon as you arrive at the airport in Vietnam, you are required to complete an entry and exit form. This form is also used for Customs declaration. Currently, the Vietnam arrival / departure card CHY2000 is used for this proced aure. Fill in and mark (x) in the appropriate box from No.1 to No.16 of the declaration form before submitting it to Customs, Immigration and Public Health authorities.

In cases of re-entry or re-exit without any must-be-declared items, you simply present your declaration form fulfilled earlier or make a new one, if necessary.

Transportation

By Air

There are three international airports in Vietnam: Noi Bai in Hanoi located 45 minutes from the town centre, Danang in the Centre, 4 km from the heart of the town, and Tan Son Nhat in Ho Chi Minh City located 20 minutes from the town centre.

By Road

The road network has improved but still needs to be upgraded in some areas. To cover a distance, it is reasonable to count an average speed of 50 km/hour.

By Train

Tt takes a minimum of 32 hours from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City. Although we can now find carriages with soft sleepers and air-conditioning, it is slow and not really comfortable but for a short-term journey, it is an interesting means of transportation and way to see Vietnam.

Currency

The official currency is the Vietnamese Dong (VND) although US dollars are still accepted. At the time of publishing the exchange rate is US$ 1 = 17,500 VND.

Traveler’s cheques can be cashed only at major banks and usually incur a 2 to 5% transaction fee.

Visa and Master cards are accepted now in most of hotels, restaurants and shops in main cities of Vietnam, but can also be subject to 2 to 3% transaction fees.

You can also get cash advances with your credit card either from automated teller machines (ATM) in the main tourists cities and hotels or from foreign exchange offices (subject to 2 to 3% transaction fees).

Language

Vietnamese is the official language although English is increasingly spoken by younger Vietnamese in main cities. Some people and especially elderly still speak French, while middle-aged speak Russian.

Tipping

Tipping is not mandatory although it is appreciated. Note that prices in hotels and restaurants usually include 10% for VAT and 5% for service charges.

Water

It is advisable not to drink water from the tap unless it is boiled properly.

Telecommunications
International phone call charges from Vietnam have decreased tremendously over the past few years. Today through the services-call 171 or 178, cost of an international phone call is less than 0,75 USD/minute. There are numerous Internet cafés in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and most of the hotels and coffee shops in the downtown area offer free WIFI or internet access via cable for convenient phone call VoIP. Prepaid SIM Cards for cell phones can be easily purchased at convenient stores and shops.

Health & Medical Facilities

No vaccination is required, but visitors are advised to receive inoculations against hepatitis A and B, typhoid and tetanus. Inoculation for yellow fever and tablets for malaria are not necessary although doctors still usually recommend them.

Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City have good hospitals staffed with foreign medical personnel, however for life threatening injury it can be necessary to be evacuated to Bangkok or Singapore and we therefore strongly recommend taking out medical travel insurance.

Über Vietnam

Vietnam erhielt seine Unabhängigkeit im Jahre 1954 nach Kolonialisierung der Franzosen und der prägenden Erfahrung des Vietnamkrieges erst vor einigen Jahrzehnten. Seit der historischen Ereignisse ist das Land gewachsen und hat eine neue Identität gewonnen. Vietnam bewahrt viel von dem, was von den Franzosen kolonisiert wurde, von den Stadtentwürfen, den knusprigen aber doch weichen "Banh Mi's" (vietnamesisches Baguette) und der Liebe zu seinem dunklen Röstkaffee. Es hält an seiner Vergangenheit fest, modernisiert und kultiviert gleichzeitig eine aufgeschlossene Haltung, die Jedermanns Interesse weckt.
