Russian can apply a new e-visa even they are in Vietnam and the old visa is still valid. After new visa is approved. Russian passport holders can do the border run to cancel the old visa and use the new visa to enter Vietnam again.

Border run can be crossing the borders between Vietnam and Cambodia, or Laos, or China. Russian also can fly to another country to do the border run. For our experience, crossing the nearby border will save a lot of time and money, and it can be the best option for Russian. For example, Russian living in Ho Chi Minh city can take a bus to Tay Ninh province, then do the border run through “Moc Bai border” and then come back to Vietnam at the same day.
