Business Aviation in Vietnam: Part 1 – Operational Tips

This is a post by author Edmond Yuen. Edmond Yuen is head of Trip Support Services, Asia-Pacific, for Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc., located in Hong Kong
This is part one of a two-article series on business aircraft operations to Vietnam.

Vietnam is attracting an increasing number of business- and tourism-related General Aviation (GA) movements – primarily to three or four key locations. While GA infrastructure is somewhat restricted in Vietnam, and choices in ground handling services are limited, operations to this part of the world go smoothly for operators who’ve been diligent in the pre-trip planning stage.

The following is an overview of what you need to know when operating in Vietnam:

1. Primary consideration is a reliable ground handling agent
There are not many experienced and reliable GA ground handlers available in Vietnam, and English-speaking skills are often limited in this region. Key consideration for a successful operation to Vietnam is setting up a reliable ground handling agent. When you operate to smaller secondary locations, it’s best to reposition a supervisory handling agent from a larger center. If a chosen ground handler cannot adequately supervise your operations – and ensure that services are provided on a timely basis – there will be issues and potential delays at the airport. Note that fixed-base operators are not available at airports in Vietnam.

2. Popular destinations in Vietnam
Tan Son Nhat Intl (VVTS), Ho Chi Minh City, is by far the most frequent GA destination within Vietnam, and this is followed by movements to the capital city of Ha Noi (VVNB), the business/tourism destination of Danang (VVDN), and popular beach destinations of Cam Ranh (VVCR) and Hue (VVPB). All of these are Airports of Entry (AOEs).

3. Secondary/domestic airports in Vietnam may be restrictive
While most GA operations to and within Vietnam go to the four major airports, there are no restrictions or issues impacting domestic flight operations within the country. Certain local airports and military airfields may be restricted by operating approvals depending on the purpose of your travel. Some secondary airports in Vietnam only have charts available in Vietnamese. In such cases your ground handler may be able to "translate" the charts for you, but it’s the responsibility of the crew to determine whether or not to use these translated charts. Note that landing permits for domestic legs take longer than for AOE permits. For operations to secondary airports in Vietnam, it’s always best to arrange for a supervisory ground handling agent to go out ahead of your arrival. Be advised that operators are responsible for all associated costs for repositioning a handling agent.

4. No airport slots or PPRs are required for Vietnam
No airports in Vietnam currently require airport slots or Prior Permission Required (PPR). Noise regulations are not in effect and at this time it’s still possible to operate Stage 2 aircraft to and within Vietnam.

5. Be aware of new ADS-B requirements
ADS-B requirements for Vietnam were implemented Dec. 12, 2013. Aircraft not meeting these requirements will be restricted to a flight level of 290 or below. Note that this covers eight oceanic air traffic services routes, including L625, M771, N892, L642, M765, M768, N500, and L628, and exemptions are not possible. Effective Jun. 1, 2003, all commercial operations, including charter (non-scheduled commercial), with maximum certified seating of more than 30 seats, or with a maximum takeoff weight greater than 33,069 pounds (15,000 kilograms), must be fitted with ACAS II or TCAS II (version 7.0) to enter Vietnam’s airspace.

6. Consider permit lead times
Permits are processed by the Civil Aviation Administration Vietnam (CAAV). In general, it takes about four business days to obtain a landing or overflight permit for Vietnam. Short-notice requests are possible and usually achievable with one business day’s advance notice for landing permits and a few hours for overflight permits, but it’s at the discretion of the CAAV. While CAAV officially shuts down on weekends/holidays, there’s usually someone available to process permits and permit revisions. For landing permit requests, you’ll need to provide the schedule, operator information, certificates of registration and airworthiness, worldwide insurance (with war risk coverage), crew and passenger information, purpose of trip, and a local business contact, as well as information on your max flight level and operational flight level. Plan on a couple of days’ additional lead time when applying for landing permits for domestic non-AOEs. The reason for this is that the slot officer will need to work with the local airport authority regarding aircraft parking and other local operating requirements. However, for short-notice requests it’s sometimes possible to process domestic permits within one day.

7. Know permit validity
Vietnam permits are valid for +72 hours. Note that if you wish to arrive earlier than the approved permit time, a permit revision will be required. Revisions are needed for changes to schedule (outside the validity window), crew/passenger information, and aircraft registry. Permit revisions in Vietnam generally require 24-48 hours’ notice.

Vietnam is a less-developed GA environment than some of the surrounding countries in terms of services and infrastructure. Operators should allow plenty of lead time in arranging permits and be especially careful in choosing capable ground handlers.

Business Aviation in Vietnam – Part 2:
CIQ, Documentation, and Ground Services

This business aviation blog post continues from our article last week, entitled "Business Aviation in Vietnam: Part 1 – Operational Tips."

For business aircraft operators with missions to Vietnam, it’s important to coordinate visa and Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine (CIQ) arrangements and additional ground services with your 3rd-party provider and ground handler in advance.

The following is an overview of what you need to know when operating to Vietnam:

1. Visas are needed for crew and passengers
Crew/passenger visas are needed on arrival for Vietnam at Tan Son Nhat Intl (VVTS), Ha Noi (VVNB), Danang (VVDN), Hue (VVPB), and Cam Ranh (VVCR), which serves the world-class beach resort of Nha Trang. These are all airports of entry. Note that prior arrangements must be made to secure visas on arrival, and lead time for this service is typically two to three business days. It’s important to forward all passport information to your handler in advance and to bring a passport-sized photo on arrival. Passports should have at least six months’ remaining validity at the time of your visa request.

2. Clearing CIQ in Vietnam
In most cases, unless you’ve pre-arranged a VIP room, crew members and passengers clear CIQ within the main terminal along with commercial airline passengers. VIP rooms may be requested for CIQ clearance at VVTS, VVNB, and VVDN. There are extra charges for this service, but it’s well worth the expense to avoid having to clear in the main terminal. When VIP rooms have been arranged, passengers will be transported to this location, passports will be collected, and passengers will wait for their stamped passports to be returned by the ground handler. For crew CIQ clearance, the ground handler will collect crew passports and will take steps to clear them while the crew members are shutting down the aircraft. For departure crew members can go directly to the aircraft while the ground handler takes their passports and clears them outbound.

3. Additional considerations for visas on arrival
Note that passengers/crew must go to the main terminal to process visas on arrival unless they’ve requested a VIP room in advance. Passengers will be escorted to the terminal to fill out a form, attach a passport-sized photo, and provide a visa approval letter for the Vietnam Immigration Department. They will then wait for immigration police to call their names, pay visa stamp fees, and receive their passports with paper visas attached. If passengers have requested VIP lounge service, they’ll simply provide both the passports and passport-sized photos and wait in the lounge while the ground handler obtains the visas.

4. Full services are available
Full aircraft and ground handling services are available at VVTS, VVNB, VVDN, VVCR, and VVPB. Credit for all services and government fees can be arranged with prior notice.

5. In-flight catering options
Crews generally source catering directly from local restaurants and hotels while in Vietnam. Be sure that the hotel/restaurant is aware of packaging requirements for your particular galley configuration and that food items have been cooled to food-safe temperatures prior to pickup. It’s easy and straightforward for crews to transport catering to their aircraft in Vietnam. You’ll normally be permitted to drive right up to your aircraft, after passing through an airport security gate.

6. Local area considerations
Good selections of 4- and 5-star crew hotel accommodations, including large international chain hotels, are available at major destinations in Vietnam. Hotel standards are very high in Vietnam these days, and crew rooms generally run less than $200 per night. Best option for local travel is prepaid transportation (car with driver). Avoid rental cars/scooters and local taxis. Although Vietnam is generally a low-crime environment, pickpocket activity can be a concern – especially in major cities and tourist areas.

7. Additional tips for Vietnam
Two copies of your general declaration are required when you land in Vietnam. The departure port, just prior to your first landing in Vietnam, should prepare these gen decs as authorities will know actual crew, passenger, and cargo specifics. In the case that these gen decs are missing, your ground handler can create them for you upon arrival. When you are in Vietnam, your ground handler will be able to file your flight plan with air traffic control – avoiding the need for the crew to go to the tower. Ramp access for crew transportation is available for arrival/departure. Major airports in Vietnam are secure facilities, with regular patrols and surveillance. Private security can be arranged for your aircraft, but this is generally not recommended at larger airport destinations.

Closing thoughts
It’s always best to try to plan on seven days’ advance notice when arranging services for Vietnam. Ensure that crew/passenger visa arrangements are in place and take the time to source the best ground handler for your intended destination. It’s important to have a ground handler that can orchestrate all required services. Also note that when operating to secondary domestic airfields in Vietnam, there may be additional suggested pre-planning measures.
