I heard the British passport holders only need a stamp and no visa, or does this not apply if you live abroad?

 

Until 30 June 2021, ‘British Citizen’ passport holders travelling for tourism or business can enter Vietnam for up to a maximum of 15 days (inclusive of dates of entry and exit) without a visa. If you have a different type of British nationality – for example ‘British national (overseas)’ you’ll need to get a visa before entering Vietnam.

Small stamps, entry/exit combined takes-up about 1/3 of PP page.
