There are two common ways to get your visa
1. Getting a
visa on arrival
Visa on arrival or pre-arranged visa has
been online for almost 6 years, and it increasingly becomes the most
convenient way to get a visa to Vietnam as everything has been made
simple from the procedure to payment methods.
The entry visa will be stamped on your passport as you pass through our
immigration checkpoint. This kind of visa is available for entering the
country by air only.
2. Getting a visa at Vietnamese
The process of getting a business visa or
a tourist visa is generally the same. Most tourists get their visa
through a Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate office in their country of
residence or in their travels country before entering Vietnam.
For a tourist visa, you will need to submit:
permit form (which can vary from one Vietnamese embassies or consulate
abroad to another).
2) Two photos (usually 4cm x 6cm or 3 cm x 4 cm)
3) Your original passport
4) Visa fee
The form and the fee can vary by country,
so please check directly the Vietnamese embassy or consulate to which
you are applying.
A business visa usually also requires a letter of support from your
sponsor agency or company in Vietnam. In person, the process usually
takes 2-3 days, and by mail, the process usually takes 2-3 weeks,
depending on the service you use, although times can vary considerably
by embassy or consulate. If you are mailing, please note that you need
to make arrangements to have your passport with visa returned to you.
For assistance, you can process your visa through a travel agency or
tour company in Vietnam, with an additional fee, although this is not
usually necessary unless you need visa on arrival services.
