Terrorism

Although there’s little history of terrorism in Vietnam - the only incident in recent years concerned a failed attempt to ignite small incendiary devices at Ho Chi Minh City airport - attacks can’t be ruled out. You should be aware of the global risk of indiscriminate terrorist attacks which could be in public areas, including those visited by foreigners.

There’s a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals, from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria. You should be vigilant at this time.
