Foreigners entering Vietnam must obtain the most important travel document called visa if their countries are not included in the list of Vietnam visa exempt countries or eligible nations for electronic visas. Vietnam visa is issued by Vietnamese Embassy or Consulates, travel agencies.

August 28, 2017 / / —

Besides the standard visa issued at the Embassy, two most presently convenient visa types are visa online (visa on arrival) or e-visa. These two new types of visa are the most innovative visa policies for applying and granting Vietnam visas. Each visa has its own requirements as well as procedures. Before deciding to choose the visa type, travelers should cautiously check details of each visa type in advance to determine the most suitable one for their travel needs.

Visitors having diplomatic of legal passport of Vietnam visa exempt countries will not need a Vietnam visa. These travelers will be issued a one month or three months, single or multiple entry visas depending on their nationalities. Residents of China, Cuba and North Korea owning passports for public affairs or official passports endorsed for public relations do not require a visa for Vietnam. Travelers who are not exempted from visa requirements can visit Phu Quoc without a visa for a maximum of 30 days. Visitors have to come to Phu Quoc from a third country or international airports in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City where they can proceed to the domestic terminals.

If visitors want to extend their new staying duration permission in Vietnam, they have two choices to make and that are getting visa extension and visa renewal. Tourists are permitted to stay longer in Vietnam without re-entering if they exit Vietnam before their visa expired. So visitors have to apply for a new visa if they want to come back to this country after leaving and the extension fee is much cheaper than renewal fee. Extending Vietnam visa has to be completed before their visa expired. The processing time for extending visa takes seven working days at Vietnam Immigration Department.

Renewing Vietnam visa means that foreign travelers will be issued a new visa stamp or visa sticker on their passport with a new duration permission. Keep in mind that the maximum length of stay is 3 months, and the visa renewal fee is higher than the visa extension fee. Visa renewal is issued for visitors having Vietnam visa exemption, and having a current visa is not correspondent to their staying extending requirement and those who want to get multiple entry visa in 1 and 3 months.
Foreigners of any nationality could transit through Vietnam by air without visa for less than 24 hours. Remember that staying overnight in the transit lounge is allowed.

Vietnam government launched a new electronic visa system in early February 2017. This visa is valid for up to 30 days for citizens of 40 eligible countries. The processing time takes three working days and is processed online completely.

Travelers having a Vietnam visa approval letter granted and stamped in Hanoi, Da Nang or Ho Chi Minh city by the Vietnamese Immigration Department within the Ministry of Public Security or the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs can get a Vietnam visa for a maximum stay of 1 or 3 months at airports in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang or Nha Trang.

Nationalities who possess an APEC Business Travel Card (ABTC) containing "VNM" on the back of the card can enter visa-free for business trips for up to 60 days.
