Vietnamese visa is an official travel document granted by Vietnamese competent authorities, providing permission to travel to enter and exit Viet Nam. A valid passport and a visa are required for all foreigners visiting Viet Nam. Viet Nam Visas are issued by Vietnamese embassies and consulates or Vietnam Department of Immigration. Some overseas offices of Viet Nam Tourism and Vietnam Airlines are able to issue tourist visas.
There are 3 ways to get visa to Viet Nam:
- Get visa at Viet Nam Embassies abroad
- Get visa stamping upon arrival
1. 1-month tourist E-VISA (Only arrival by air)
An electronic visa (E-visa) is one of visa types issued to foreigners by Vietnamese Immigration Department via electronic system. Viet Nam E-visa is valid for maximum of 30 days, single entry. Outside Viet Nam foreigners who want to enter Viet Nam can personally apply for E-visa or through the inviting/guaranteeing agencies and organizations. E-visa fee is paid via electronic payment gateway as prescribed by the Immigration Department. The fee will not be refunded if the application is refused. For 40 countries who allowed to get E-Visa, after about 7 days we will send you E-visa by PDF via email. At the airport you only need to show the e-visa to Immigration at the check in counter.
You can apply e-visa by yourself directly on Viet Nam Immigration site.
List of Countries that allowed E-visa issuing.
Conditions for being granted e-visa:
- Outside Viet Nam foreigners;
- Holding valid passport;
- Not falling into the cases of suspension from entry prescribed in Article 21 of Law on foreigners’ entry into, exit from, transit through, residence in Viet Nam.
E-visa holders in Viet Nam may be considered to get new visa if being invited/guaranteed by authority/organization/individual in Viet Nam in accordance with Law on foreigners’ entry into, exit from, transit through, residence in Viet Nam.
Foreigners who entry Viet Nam must comply with Vietnamese law.
2. Get 1 month tourist visas at Vietnam Embassies abroad
You need to contact Viet Nam Embassy abroad. Obtaining a visa from the Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate in your home country is more expensive than getting a visa on arrival. You can apply for a visa up to six months in advance of arrival in Viet Nam. In case the Embassy asks for invitation letter, you can contact us for invitation letter (with fee).
3. Get 1 month tourist visa stamping upon arrival
The “Visa approval letter” is a document (approved by the Immigration Office) that allows you to enter and exit Viet Nam for a given time period. With the approval letter, you can pick up your visa upon arrival at one of the three international airports in Viet Nam (Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang City – Cam Ranh Airport and Da Nang). You can contact us directly for invitation letter. All you need is to send us your passport details (Full name, Day of Birth, Nationality, Gender, Passport number, Exp. Date). Normally, the approval letter is processed and emailed you within five (5) to seven (07) business days (excluding Saturday, Sunday and National Holidays). In urgent cases, you are able to have the approval letter within the day/next day (surcharge applies).
In general, there are two fees you are required to pay:
- Fee for invitation letter, paid to ITS.
- Visa stamping fee: 1 month tourist visa stamping is about 25 USD per person (depends on Nationality), paid to ITS or to Immigration at the airport.
