Do I need a Yellow fever certificate to enter Vietnam from China? Do I need one if I return to Vietnam from Cambodia?

Officially, i've no idea, but i've crossed both in both directions without any problem or being asked.

In general, they only ask to see certificates if you are arriving (by boat or plane) from an infected areas, as opposed to crossing common land borders which won't stop the disease moving around if it wants to.

No certificate is needed unless you are coming from an area where yellow fever is endemic. There is no YF in Asia ( it is a problem in Africa and S America, so unless you are traveling from one of those areas it should not be a problem).
