Today I would like to share my own experience in making Vietnam visa online to you. I do hope that my sharing can help those who are coming to Vietnam to understand about Vietnam visa for their trip.
I come from USA and I am a frequent traveler, I have been to many countries all over the world. Before each trip, the first thing I care about is visa. I usually check on internet if the country I am going to requires a visa or not, if yes, what is the most convenient way to get it. The traditional way to get visa is applying at embassy but it takes much time and effort. Now, many governments offer visa on arrival which you can get at the airport upon arrival and this is the most fastest and easiest way to get visa.
Vietnam’s government also provides Vietnam visa on arrival for tourists and businessmen all over the world. It helps us to get visa stamped at the airport instead of applying at embassy. In order to get visa stamp, you will need an approval letter from the immigration department beforehand. It is very easy to get this approval letter because there are many travel agencies in Vietnam offering this service. You just need to apply then get approval letter issued. There are many types of visa you can choose, 1 month single, 1 month multiple, 3 month single, 3 month multiple visa, even 6 month multiple visa (just some reputable agencies can make 6 month multiple visa for some certain countries)
Normally, there are 3 main steps to apply vietnam visa. After you choose a reliable website, you just need to apply your information, make payment for them. They will send email to confirm and your visa will be sent after 1-3 working days via email. You just need to print it out and show at the airport and get visa stamped. It is so easy and clear, isn’t it?
There are some important notes you should bear in mind when you apply for Vietnam visa online:
- Find a reliable travel agency: This is very important. Some agencies will take lot of time in requesting you so many information from you as they do not have a complete website, no visa application form. The unreliable travel agencies may spend 3-5 working days to get visa issued while it often takes just 1-3 working days. This may affect to your travel plan if you have booked flight tickets before making visa
- Check carefully if your nationality belongs to the limited ones. Because the criminal rate of some countries who came to Vietnam and broke the law was high so the immigration department gave more strict regulations to those ones. They will need you to send some documents such as scanned passport, hotel booking, returned tickets, invitation letter then they will check and decide if they will issue visa for you or not. It takes from 7-10 working days to get visa issued so you should check this before booking for your flight tickets. The limited countries usually those coming from African and Middle East. This is the one of the methods the immigration department use to limit the criminal rate, it does not mean that they want to treat you unfairly
- Make sure that the information you submit on visa application form is exact as the same on your passport (especially your full name, passport number) because if you submit it wrong, you will not get visa stamped at the airport as they base on the information you have submitted
I have been to Vietnam 5 times in last 3 years (To be honest Vietnam is an ideal place to visit and I really love this country). I always use Vietnam visa online from reputable agencies such as VietnamVisaOnline.net and VisaOnArrival.net Everything goes smoothly and it takes less time.
I may not list all the information you need but I hope you have an overview about how to make Vietnam visa online and if you have plan to come to Vietnam, please remember that Vietnam visa is the first ticket. Have a nice trip!
Asking about how to apply visa if I am not at my country
Hi, I would want to ask question about visa application. Here is the thing. I am a Malaysian who currently taking undergraduate course in Taiwan. I have my internship at Vietnam for 52 days. Which it stated that Malaysia passport holders can go to Vietnam for 30 days without visa , so now my internship is over 30 days and I would want to ask how can I do with the visa applying? Do I need to go back to Malaysia to apply for the visa? Or is there any other way for me to solve this problem? I don't know much about visa stuff . I am here to ask for help.
