There are currently a total of 21 Vietnam passport visa-free countries, 30 Vietnam visa-on-arrival countries, and 1 eTA destinations.

Altogether, Vietnam passport holders can enter a total of 52 destinations—either without a visa, through a visa on arrival, or via an eTA. As a result, the Vietnam passport ranks 88 in the world.

Separate from these Vietnam visa-free countries and visa-on-arrival countries, there are 177 additional destinations which Vietnam passport holders either need a physical visa to enter or an eVisa (i.e. visa required countries).
