Vietnam visa application - To Whom & How?



​What is a Vietnam visa?

Vietnam visa is a stamp glued into a passport to permit the passport holder to enter and stay in Vietnam within that visa’s validity time. The validity time (from entry till exit date) is noted in the visa stamp. If the visa expires, the passport holder is required to extend in case he/she would like to stay longer in Vietnam.
Normally Vietnam visa application is done at the Vietnam embassy in the passport holder’s country. However, at present, it is easier and quicker for passport holders to make Vietnam visa application because they may apply online for Vietnam visa on arrival rather than traveling to the embassy, which means the visa be stamped into passport at the arrival airport in Vietnam.

To whom is Vietnam visa application required?
