2. Some frequently asked questions

1. Question – Which countries are allowed to hold dual citizenship?

Answer – There are some typical countries in the world that accept multiple citizenship: Australia, UK, France, USA, Canada. You can apply for naturalization and keep 2, 3 or as many citizenships as you want.

2. Question – Which passport do you use for entry and exit?

Answer – In principle, when you enter or exit Vietnam, you can only use 1 passport: either a Vietnamese passport, or a foreign passport.

Case 1: If you use a Vietnamese passport when entering (no visa required), you must also use a Vietnamese passport when exiting. Customs officers can check this through the immigration stamp on the passport.

Case 2: If you use a foreign passport to enter (need a valid visa or visa exemption certificate), you must also use an external passport when exiting.

Note: If using a foreign passport with a visa, you must comply with the conditions of that visa. If you enter with this passport and exit with another passport, it will be considered a violation of Vietnamese law on immigration.

3. Question – Will Vietnamese citizens who are granted additional foreign citizenship lose their Vietnamese citizenship?

Answer – According to Article 21 Decree No. 78/2009/ND-CP dated September 22, 2009 of the Government stipulating: “Since July 1, 2009, Vietnamese citizens have a nationality for any reason. If you have a foreign nationality and have not lost your Vietnamese nationality, you will still have Vietnamese citizenship.”
