If you are short on time or far from the location of the Vietnam Embassy, you can apply for an e-Visa online from the Vietnam Immigration Service.
An electronic visa (Evisa) is one of visa types issued to foreigners by Vietnamese Immigration Department through an electronic system for maximum of 30 single entry days. Entry into Vietnam by boat, road or plane are advantages of Evisa.
Why choose Evisa:
There is no need to stop at the Visa Office on Arrival to pick up the visa. Especially No additional charge upon arrival.
You can just go online to upload your scanned passport and photo when applying for Vietnam e-Visa. After you pay the fee online, your Vietnam Evisa will be ready within 3 business days (please choose the express service within 8 or 4 business hours in urgent cases).
The less time and cost involved in using Evisa are the main reasons why many people choose this method compared to other lengthy and expensive ones.This will not worry people who want to visit Vietnam how long the visa process can take.
Vietnam currently has 9 airports, 16 land border gates and 9 sea border gates that allow foreigners to enter and exit through Evisa. However, you must determine the border crossings or the arrival airport before departure. It is not allowed to switch after applying for an e-Visa.
Please note that there is only one type of visa in the evisa system: 30-day visa and single-entry visa.
