Vietnam is one of my favorite countries I’ve been to. It’s really an amazing country, very beautiful, great scenery from every corner of the country. Also one of my main reasons why Vietnam is such an amazing place is because the Vietnamese people are humble AF. I dare you to go visit this awesome country. It’s one of the easiest visa processes you can think of. So here is the 4 easy steps on how to apply for a Vietnam Visa. You can check if your country is eligible for a visa just below the 4 steps.

4 Easy Steps on How to Apply for Vietnam Visa

Step 1

Fill out the online application form. This step is necessary for obtaining an approval letter, which you will need to show upon arrival at one of the Vietnam International airports to get your visa stamp.

Fill out the application using the correct information and make sure everything is the same as on your Passport – Name, Passport Number, Date of Birth(DOB), Nationality, Gender and Arrival Date.

Step 2

Confirm and pay. The fees are quite reasonable. For the visa approval letter, you pay a fee online that starts at $17 it all depends on the type of visa and how many you are requesting. See Fee Table Below.

You will also pay a fee upon arrival for the visa stamp. This will cost an additional $25 for a single entry visa and $50 for multiple entry visa. The stamping fee is paid in cash in either Vietnamese Dong or US dollars, so be prepared to have the correct fee amount before you depart for Vietnam.

Make sure your passport has plenty of blank pages for visa stamps before you leave. Also, be sure that your passport will have at least six months of validity remaining at the date of your arrival in Vietnam. If your passport is nearing its expiration date, get it renewed well before you leave.

Step 3

Once you received the approval letter Print it out.

As soon as you submit your application and payment, they will start processing your visa request. Once you have submitted your online application for a visa approval letter, you will typically receive the approval letter via email within 2 business days. It is very important that you print the letter, in color if possible, and bring it with you. It is a good idea to keep your visa approval letter with your passport, so you know where it is and can conveniently find it when you arrive at the airport in Vietnam.

You will also need to prepare and bring at least two passport photos (4cm/1.58inches x 6cm/2.37inches) .

Step 4

Get your visa stamp upon arrival at one of four Vietnam international airports. Travelers arriving at airports in Hanoi, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City or Nha Trang, are required to complete an Entry/Exit form (available at the airports or Download it Here). You will then present your approval letter, passport, photos, and cash payment for the stamping fee in order to receive the visa stamp in your passport.

Just follow the signs and instructions at the airport and ask for help, the airport staff is very helpful. Enjoy your stay in Vietnam, it’s an amazing country.
