Apply for Vietnam visa

Before traveling to the Vietnam, citizens of foreign countries mustobtain a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. The type of visa you will need is based on the purpose of your travel, the place to pick up the visa. 


Presently, getting visa to Vietnam is quite simple, convenient and fast through online visa services. There are two options to apply for Vietnam visa including visa on arrival and getting visa at Vietnam Embassy


1/ Getting Vietnam visa at Vietnam embassy: You can visit Vietnam Embassy/ Consulate in the country you are living directly in person or you can apply online for Vietnam visa approval code (visa to pick up at Vietnam Embassy/ Consulate) via visa agent. It will take 1-2 working days to have your approved code. When receiving visa approval code, you print it and bring to stamp Vietnam visa at Vietnam Embassies/ Consulates. 


2/ Getting Vietnam visa on arrival (pick up Vietnam visa at the check-in point at airport): firstly, access to the link, then pay visa approval fee. You will receive the Vietnam Visa approval letter after 1 or 2 working days. To get Vietnam visa at airport, youneed to print the approval letter out and bring it associated with your own passport to Vietnam airport to stamp your Vietnam visa.


In general, this way is the most convenient, cheapest and simplest. For air travelers, we strongly advised you applying for visa on arrival as you do not need to spend time at Vietnam Embassy, just spend a few minutes to apply online and print the approval letter granted by Vietnam Immigration to stamp Visa on arrival at Vietnam airport.
