visa for entering Vietnam by cruise

We will be cruising on Ocean Princess, and visiting Phu My/Ho Chi Minh City on Dec. 8, 2009, and Chan May/Da Nang/Hue on Dec. 10, 2009. My wife and I are Canadians and hold Canadian passports.

Do we require visas for these visits? Can we use a "Visa on arrival", although we do not arrive at an Airport? Thank you for your assistance.

I dont understand, do we need a different kind of visa if we are on a cruise. We are taking a cruise from Bangkok and stopping at 3 different ports. Please explain

Hi Yasmin,

yes, visa on arrival works for air travel only, so if you are cruising to Vietnam, you may need to contact Vietnamese embassy in Bangkok to apply for your visa before you go.

Hope that helps.
