Bonjour Nous sommes arrivés au Vietnam le 9 août et repartons le 29 août. Nous avons donc fait un visa avant notre arrivée. Hors, il y a une erreur sur le visa (le 2eme prénom ne figure pas). Quels sont les risques encourus lors de notre retour pour la France le 29 août, sachant que nous sommes à Nha Trang, et que nous allons prendre 2 vols. Merci beaucoup pour votre aide, nous sommes très inquiets

    Bonjour Monique, si vous avez déjà utilisé votre e-visa pour entrer au Vietnam en douceur, vous pouvez continuer à partir vers la France sans problème. Si vous êtes entrée au Vietnam avec une exemption de visa et que vous n'avez pas utilisé votre e-visa, vous devrez quitter le Vietnam par avion et entrer au Vietnam avec votre e-visa. L'absence de votre nom sur votre e-visa serait alors un problème, vous pourriez ne pas être autorisé à entrer au Vietnam. En dehors de votre vol du 29 août, quel sera votre prochain vol ?
