PASSPORTS, VISAS & TRAVEL DOCUMENTS

Roundtrip airport transfers are included when air is purchased with a cruise or cruisetour package; if air is not purchased from Viking, transfers may be purchased separately. All transfers must be in conjunction with a Viking-purchased cruise, cruisetour, land extension or extra hotel nights. If you should choose to make your own air arrangements, transfers may be purchased through Viking Cruises up to 30 days before departure for an additional cost, or you may make your own transfer arrangements.

PASSPORTS

Due to airline security measures, your passport name must match your airline ticket name or you may be denied boarding. Your passport’s expiration date must be at least six months after your return from your trip; if it is not, you should renew your passport.

VISAS

If you are traveling with us to China, Russia, or Southeast Asia, you will need a visa. As a service to guests, visas are available from an independent third party upon request. If you would like to obtain your visa through our partner, please visit their website and download a visa kit. Complete and return the forms to the visa company in a timely manner so that you will have your documentation in time to travel—the timing is explained within the kit instructions. Should you decide to obtain a Russian visa directly instead of using the kit, you will need to contact Viking Cruises for an Invitation Letter using the link provided. Anyone who wishes to obtain their own visas for Southeast Asia should make sure to get a single-entry visa for Cambodia and a double-entry visa for Vietnam (Vietnam and Cambodia e-visas may not be used with this itinerary). This will enable travel to Vietnam, to Cambodia and back to Vietnam during the course of the itinerary. Note: Viking River Cruises accepts no responsibility for obtaining required visas nor for advising guests of visa or other immigration requirements.

DISTRIBUTION OF TRAVEL DOCUMENTS

Tickets and other travel documents will be issued approximately 3 weeks prior to departure. All early document requests will be charged a $25 early processing fee. Your tickets will come with a Passenger Ticket Contract; ¡t is important to read and understand it before you go.
