In addition to their passport details, the applicant should provide their contact details, purpose of visit, requirements, working programme and schedule of activities in Vietnam.

If the application is approved, a press visa will be issued.

A press officer will acts as an interpreter and will accompany the foreign journalist during the press task in Vietnam.  Please note that The Foreign Press Centre will charge a fee for the service provided by the press officer.

For the journalists who have Vietnamese working counterparts:
The journalists contact their Vietnamese working counterparts and provide all details such as composition of the press team, passport details, purposes, requirements, working programme, schedule of activities and list of equipment.

Then the Vietnamese counterparts will contact the Press and Information Department, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Vietnam to ask for the permission to receive and do press work with these visiting journalists.
