Passport: Your passport will be needed in full and valid for at least 6 months after the date of your planned departure. Failure to do so may result in being not permitted entry into Vietnam.

What happens if I can’t come to Camp Vietnam once I have booked my place?

We can defer your placement acceptance offer to a future intake date that must be initiated within 12 months from your original intake date. Please note that all deposits are non-refundable so you would be best advised to take out a travel insurance policy that will cover this if there is even a slight chance that you will not be coming to Camp Vietnam.
