Updated Information: Vietnam 1-Year Visa Is Still Available In 2020 For American Passport Holders

The 1-year visa is a type of visa granted for those who want to come to Vietnam for the long-term period, with the tourism or business purpose. In the past, many countries can apply and get Vietnam 1-year visa easily, but the rule recently changed from August 2018.

From August 2018, only American passport holders can apply Vietnam visa up to 1 year. The six-month visa is the same. The other nationalities can get maximum 3-month visa to Vietnam. The 6-month and 1-year visa are both available online for the US citizens.

Does 1-year Vietnam visa still work for The US in 2020?

In 2020, the rule still keeps the same. The 6-month and 1-year visa are only available for American passport holders, and they can apply these types of visa online. It takes 5 working days to process the 1-year visa and can be expedited in 1 working day. What the applicants need to do is accessing the online application form, filling out all required information and receiving the visa result through email.
