Apply for Vietnam visa

According to Vietnam Immigration law, foreigners wishing to enter Vietnam for tourist or business purpose are required to apply for Vietnam visa.


The type of visa you will need is based on the purpose of your travel, the mode to pick up the visa. Vietnam visa holders can enter and exit Vietnam at Hanoi, HCMC and Danang air-ports.

Getting visa to Vietnam is quite simple, convenient and quick through online visa services. There are two options to apply for a Vietnam visa including visa on arrival and getting visa at Vietnam Embassy (visa code).


1/ Getting Vietnam visa at Vietnam embassy:

You can contact with Vietnam Embassy/ Consulate in the country you are living or you are staying in directly to apply for Vietnam visa, or you can apply online for Vietnam visa code ( visa to pick up at Vietnam Embassy/ Consulate)

- It will take 1-2 working days to have your approved code.

- You print the approval code to stamp Vietnam visa at Vietnam Visa Embassies/ Consulates.


2/ Getting Vietnam visa on arrival (pick up Vietnam visa at the check-in point).

You Apply for Vietnam Visa on arrival (Visa to pick up at Vietnam airport) here

- You receive the Vietnam Visa approval letter after 1 or 2 working days

- You print the approval letter out (associated with your own passport) to stamp Vietnam visa at Vietnam Visa airports


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