The Vietnamese Dong has been the official currency of Vietnam since May 1978, and is issued by the Vietnamese State Bank. After the Zimbabwe Dollar collapsed in April 2009, the Vietnamese Dong became the lowest-value currency in the world, with £1 buying roughly 30,000 VND.
Vietnam is generally a very inexpensive place to visit, with restaurant meals costing less than £4 per person, and city-centre rooms available from as little as £10 per night. We have seen that the average order placed between 1st of August and 31st of October 2013 is for about £625 (20,000,000 VND)
Most tourist centres in Vietnam will accept both Vietnamese Dongs and US Dollars, so it is advisable to take either Dollars or a mixture of both. US Dollars have the advantage that they can be exchanged back into Sterling upon return from Vietnam using a currency buyback service, and spending is more manageable with $300 in your wallet instead of 6,000,000 VND!
Only exchange money at official Money Exchange Counters. Illegal money changers like gold shops may offer a higher rate but there is a real risk of losing your money. It is almost impossible to change VND into US dollars without a flight ticket showing your onward destination even at official money changers.
You will need either a single visit or multiple visit (if you intend to exit and re-enter) visa to enter Vietnam. Make sure you get the correct visa for the purpose and destination of your trip.
You must have have at least one month left on any visa or you will be refused entry.
We strongly recommend you make sure your get the most up to date information and check with the Vietnamese Embassy in London.
Over the past week the Vietnamese Dong has increased by 0.67% from last Monday's rate of 29799 to today's rate of 30000 which means £750 will buy you ₫150,750.00 more now than it would have a week ago. During this period the best rate we recorded was 30005 on Wednesday and the worst rate was 29799 on Monday.
The 90 day outlook has seen the Vietnamese Dong rate drop by 4.31% from 31350 on 17th November 2015 to 30000 today. Based on these figures, £750 would have bought you ₫1,012,500.00 more three months ago that it would have today. We recorded a high rate of 31643 on 11th December 2015 and a low rate of 29166.8 on 21st January 2016.
