Practical information


All visitors to Vietnam must have an entry visa except those from visa exempt countries (or check here)

Please contact the Vietnamese diplomatic mission in your home country at your earliest convenience to obtain the entry visa well in advance.

Alternatively you can contact online a travel agency in Vietnam, such as the website to obtain an approval letter, which allows you to get an entry visa upon your arrival at the airport in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City or Danang.

If you choose this option, please notice that:

1) No visa will be issued upon arrival without the prearranged approval letter.

2) You may have to wait for a considerable amount of time at the airport before getting your visa issued.



The workshop will take place at Ton Duc Thang University19 Nguyen Huu Tho Street, Tan Phong Ward, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
