Visa Question for Philippine Passport Holder

Question: My name is Anna and I will be traveling from Cebu to Ho Chi Minh next week.  I am a citizen of the Philippines and hold a Philippine passport.  I have traveled to Vietnam many times before.  I have never needed a visa before because I stay for less than 30 days. Last December, I was flying from Hong Kong to Ha Noi and was asked if I visited Vietnam in the previous 30 days.  The airline counter agent said I would need a visa if I enter Vietnam in the same way within a 30 day period. Is this true? Last week I flew from Cebu to Manila to Ho Chi Minh.  I will be doing the exact same route next week, so it is within 30 days.  Do I need a tourist visa this time?

Answer: As a Philippines passport holder, you are exempt from Vietnam visa for 21 days and you can re-enter anytime you wish. The 30-day gap is not required. (Our advice is for informational purpose only, we also advise that you contact the embassy of Vietnam in Philippines for official confirmation)
