Procedures to apply Vietnam evisa
Before applying, you must have prepared a scanned copy of one’s valid passport details as well as a scanned passport photo. It is important to note that the scanned passport photo being sent must have the applicant looking directly at the camera without a smile.
Once the appropriate materials have been gathered, the applicant must go to the following link and proceed with the following steps:
- Click on “For foreigners”;
- Upload the passport details and passport photo files. It is important to note that both files must be uploaded separately;
- Fill in all the required information;
- Pay the US$25 application fee and submit the application (this fee is non-refundable, even if the application is denied);
- Once successfully submitted, the applicant will receive a registration code, which can be used to check on the status of the application;
Wait the standard 3 to 5 business days and return to the website to find out if the application has been approved; and If approval has been granted, print out the e-visa as proof for travel.
- Once you arrive in Vietnam, immigration authorities may ask to submit or check the following documents: Two photos with 4×6 cm dimensions; Electronic record code; Hotel booking; Round trip air tickets; and Passport valid for six months.
One important thing to note is that the applicant can enter only from the port of entry chosen in their e-visa application. Once the visa is issued, the traveler cannot switch the point of entry.
Applying for the e-visa does take longer than its Visa on arrival counterpart. The application generally requires three business days, as opposed to the Visa on arrival, which can be done in two days or less. We strongly recommend you to apply visa on arrival if you travel by air to Vietnam.
