Vietnam E-Visa

1.What is e-Visa of Vietnam?

An electronic visa (e-visa) is one of the several visa types issued by the Vietnam Immigration Department to foreigners intending to enter the country. A Vietnam e-visa is valid for a maximum of 90 days, and is valid for a visitor’s single or multiple entry to Vietnam.

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.

2. How does Vietnam e-Visa look like?

An e-Visa is an official document granted by the Immigration of Vietnam which permits a traveler to enter into and travel inside Vietnam. It is an alternative to the visa documentations issued at the embassies of Vietnam and visa on arrival. 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.
