Visa-renewal/ Long-term visa
Hi office visa in Ha Noi

Currently my boyfriend and I am living in Hanoi and we would like to renew our 3-month tourist visa again. How high would the fee be?
Second question: Is there any option to get a long-term visa (6 or 12 months) with a German passport and if so, how high is the fee then? Soon my boyfried will have a work permit, if this information might help.

Quick information overview:
German passport holders
our old visa is a 3-month-tourist-visa, single entry; issued in the Vietnamese embassy in Sihanoukville, Cambodia
most recent date of arrival: 24/01/17, arrival port: Moc Bai
we would like to extend to 3 months again (especially me; my boyfriend is interested in a long-term visa/temporarily residence card, since he will have a work permit)
His company is located in Ha Noi
temporary city: Ha Noi

Thank you for your kind help and concern.
Dear Lina,

Thanks for your email

Can you tell me which airport have you recent arrived ? If it is Noibai Hanoi, the fee is US$ 225/person. The fee for extension is more expensive than getting a new visa at the airport

We can make 6 month or one year visa for Germany, the fee is as following

6 month visa:US$ 250/person
one year visa: US$ 330/person

For your boyfriend, can you send his work permit so that we can give you the price for residence card?

We hope to hear from you soon
