It is to my understanding that for quite some years, Vietnam were not letting anyone inside Vietnam until very recently. A couple riding a harley-davidson electric glide was able to get in Vietnam with a guide at very last minute with good success so I am curious to compare your procedure vs their procedure.

This would be greatly appreciated by the ADVrider community! :-)

Looking forward to your riding report!
Bit of confusion there Whichever. No difficulties whatsoever for anyone to get a Vietnam visa, the hard part is getting a foreign registered bike in and out of Vietnam. For all intents and purposes it is practically impossible so I wouldn't bother expending much energy pursuing it further.

By comparison, Eric arranged to rent a bike in Vietnam and is now travelling around inside the country. I've done this myself twice in the past 5 years, most recently 3 months back. Great fun, very cheap, but quite dangerous for those unfamiliar with Asian road rules and congestion.
