Nha Trang, Vietnam

Downtown Nha Trang


Nha Trang is a beach resort in southern Vietnam.


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.

Until 30 June 2018, visa is not required for British, French, German, Italian and Spanish citizens with passport having at least six-month validity travelling to Viet Nam for up to 15 days for all purposes. The 15-day visa exemption is for single entry only and includes the date of entry and the date of exit. http://vietnamembassy.org.uk/index.php?action=p&ct=Notice3_2017

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.
