Nha Trang, Vietnam


Downtown Nha Trang

Introduction

Nha Trang is a beach resort in southern Vietnam.

Visas

Citizens of most countries will be issued a visa on arrival and this will be charged to their shipboard account (approx $6-$50 USD/pp depending on the ship's processing fee). It is best to confirm with your cruise line the latest visa policy.

On 22 June 2015, the Embassy received the formal notification that the Government of Viet Nam decided to exempt visa for British, German, French, Spanish and Italian citizens travelling to Viet Nam (for all purposes) for a period of up to 15 days, and on the basis of meeting all conditions prescribed by Vietnamese laws. The visa exemption period will start from 1 July 2015 and end on 30 June 2016. http://vietnamembassy.org.uk/index.php?action=p&ct=Notice2

Where You're Docked

Ships anchor and tender to a commercial pier, Nha Trang Port at the southern end of the city near the cable car to Vinpearl. A free shuttle is usually offered to Martinez Restaurant (7 Le Loi, near the Cho Dam market) approximately 3 1/2 miles north of the pier.
