Do I need a visa to enter Vietnam?
Yes, some nationalities may need a visa to enter Vietnam. The Capgemini International visa team will assist with your visa application. Please ensure you complete the questions on the visa section of the registration form so that we can correctly identify who to assist.
Are there any security concerns for travelling to Vietnam?
Vietnam is considered a safe country for travel. However, there are health recommendations to consider when travelling to Vietnam.
Those who are pregnant or have heart disease should not attend this event. Those with medical prescriptions need to know that you cannot freely bring medicine into Vietnam. We recommend that you bring your prescription, along with an official translation in English stamped by your doctor and keep the medicines in their original packaging.
Do I need any vaccinations?
There are no compulsory vaccinations for Vietnam required by law for travellers from Western Europe to gain entry, but certain vaccinations are strongly recommended. For more information, please click HERE and HERE.
How will my travel expenses be paid?
The event budget will cover the cost of your accommodation for Thursday, Jan. 9 and Friday, Jan. 10, as well as VP meeting elements while staying at the hotel. The remaining nights should be expensed through your BU in accordance with current Travel & Expenses policies. Any nights that constitute a personal stay should be paid for individually. The flight costs are covered by each BU project code.
What about other expenses?
All expenses, e.g., mini bar, laundry, etc., are to be settled on departure by each guest.
Who books my accommodation?
All attendees will have their accommodation booked at the hotel based on the travel dates they confirm on their registration page. Please do not make any separate arrangements or contact the hotel directly.
Are there any restrictions on flights?
Yes. There is a restriction from Capgemini Group of no more than 25 employees on any single flight. We are working with the local travel agents to ensure that this restriction is strictly enforced. This means that you might not get a preferred flight if it has already reached the restricted number. We appreciate your understanding.
