What to Know Before You Go

PASSPORT

A valid passport is required for Cambodia and Vietnam. Be sure to check the expiration date. Your passport must be valid for six months after the conclusion of your trip.It is a good idea to carry photocopies of your passport photo page in case your passport is lost or as an additional piece of identification, as well as two extra passport photos.

VISAS

You must obtain your Vietnam visa in the US prior to departure because visa-on-arrival regulations in Vietnam are presently unreliable. You can apply for your Vietnam visa 90 days prior to travel. You can contact a local consulate to purchase your visa, or you can contact our recommended passport and visa processing service, Passport Visas Express (www.passportvisasexpress.com).

If you are participating in the Cruise plus Land program, you should purchase the Vietnam Multiple Entry Visa. The PVE website will give you clear instructions on how to proceed. The necessary consular forms can be downloaded to your own computer. PVE can also be reached by phone at 888-596-6028. Let them know you are booked through Wilderness Travel. You can obtain your single entry visa for Cambodia through PVE as well. Please note that the Cambodia government does not accept e-visas for visitors entering from Vietnam by river cruise ship. If you participate in the Cruise only program, a Vietnam Single Entry Visa in required.

MEDICAL

We recommend checking the Center for Disease Control at www.cdc.gov should you have any international health concerns.

INOCULATIONS

Make sure you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before your trip. These vaccines include measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, polio vaccine, and your yearly flu shot. Additional vaccinations include Hepatitis A to protect from contaminated food or water in Vietnam and Cambodia, regardless of where you are eating or staying. And Typhoid, which you can get through contaminated food or water in Vietnam. The CDC recommends this vaccine for most travelers, especially if you are staying with friends or relatives, visiting smaller cities or rural areas, or if you are an adventurous eater.
