Applicants will obtain their visas electronically after providing the required information, uploading a recent passport photo (recommended dimensions: 600 x 400 px), and finally making payment with a credit or debit card.
Upon successful application, the link to download your e-Visa would be given at the final step, where applicants are informed of their approval status. In addition, the same link where they could download their e-Visa will be sent to them via a separate email message.
Passport control officers at all indicated ports of entry are able to verify applicants’ e-Visa on their systems. However, applicants are advised to carry along either a soft copy (saved on a tablet PC, smart phone, etc.) or a hard copy of e-Visa, in case of any system failures and outages.

After an e-Visa application has been approved, the visa issuance system will then send a notice to the applicant, containing a link to a web page to download and print the e-Visa from. Visitors are required to present this e-Visa at the immigration checkpoint for verification upon their arrival in Vietnam.
