Do I need a visa if I am from New Zealand and my partner from Australia?

After searching online I have found so much conflicting information about this. We will be travelling to Vietnam next year on May 23. We would like to get Visa on arrival because we have been told that a Visa is only valid for 3 months from date of purchase. We will be travelling to South America on February 17th and will be backpacking so won't be able to send our passports to Vietnam Embassy. We will be in South America for 3.5 months, so of course no use applying for the Vietnam visa before we leave because it would expire before we got there. If we can get Visa on arrival to Vietnam (Hanoi), that would be much easier. We will be in Vietnam for 2 weeks from May 23. We fly into Hanoi and will depart overland from Ho Chi Minh City to Cambodia. Thankyou

Visa exemption for Russian citizens

Hello, I'm a Russian citizen and intend to visit Vietnam for 7-8 days (less then 15), which means it's not necessary for me to acquire a visa. But I'm going to enter Vietnam not through the airport, but by ferry from China (Hainan Island). I'm concerned whether I might have problems in Halong on arrival because while in the airport the personnel usually know the visa requirements well - I an afraid the sea port staff might not be that familiar with the procedures. Another thig - do I have to show the ticket from Vietnam so they that let me in? Because I'm going to travel by Open tour bus system and in a week leave from Vietnam to Cambodia, so I won't have an airplane ticket as I'm leaving by bus. Thank you for your answer=)
