HALONG BAY - PRE-DEPARTURE INFORMATION

Halong Bay, located in the Gulf of Tonkin, is formed of some 2000 or more incredible islands and islets rising from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin and freshwater swamp forests. Geographically, Halong Bay spread approximately 1,500 square kilometres in north Vietnam with a 120 kilometre of coastline in the Gulf of Tonkin, near the border with China, and 170 kilometres east of Hanoi. Because of their precipitous nature and exceptional esthetic values, the bay is famous worldwide with its stunning network of thousands of monolithic limestone islands that jut up from its calm waters. These tiny islands are dotted with beaches and grottoes created by years of wind and waves, and have sparsely forested slopes ringing with birdsongs and serene nature tunes which make truly breathtaking majestic mighty scenery

Visas

Visitors must obtain visa approval prior to entry. Please Note: All Vietnam visas are SINGLE ENTRY - unless you have specifically requested MULTIPLE ENTRY and this is stamped into your passport. Please ensure you have a multiple entry visa if you are entering Vietnam twice. The status of a tourist visa cannot be changed from SINGLE ENTRY to MULTIPLE ENTRY once a client has arrived in Vietnam.

  • Passport details, arrival and departure dates are faxed to MARGUERITE JUNKS not later than 14 days before passengers' departure to Vietnam.
  • MARGUERITE JUNKS submits details to the Immigration Department.
  • The Immigration Department emails the approval letter to MARGUERITE JUNKS who then forwards it to the client.
