3)  QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS  ON VIETNAM VISA : 

The followings are questions from customers all over the world asking for visa procedure which we collected and posted here for you for future reference. We continue to update more questions possible to make sure that you, (as travellers) coming to our country, will know exactly what to prepare prior to your trip.

  1. Does Vietnam Travel visa start on entry or on date of approval? 

The effective date will be on entry date (date give in the approval letter) or simply the date you arrive Vietnam as the approval date may be many days in advance prior to your date of arrival. From the entry date, you can delay your arrival but no longer than the duration of your whole stay approved. You are not normally allowed to enter Vietnam before the date of entry.

  1. Is validity of passport important? 

Very important as you cannot apply for a Vietnam visa if your passport is expired. However, for some cases, you still can plan yourself that by the date of passport expire, your Vietnam visa (traveling period) is expired as well then you can go back after finishing holiday in Vietnam to extend your passport.

01 picture (photo), size 4×6 cm (passport-size photo).

Hand in the approval letter (the one agency gave you in advance), your pictures and pay required visa stamp fee then your passport to be stamped for a valid visa then you exit the airport.

  1. Do different passport holders have to pay different price? 

Same for all once you are in the list of countries which need Vietnam visa.

Yes. Please review the list of visa exempt countries. If you are out of them, then of course, you need a Vietnam visa.

Answer is definitely YES. Even if you just stay for one minute (!) whenever you exit to the entrance of airport then you must have a valid visa.

Yes you can for sure but you still need to arrange paperwork in advance (recommended). A tourist agency can help you with the paper called Letter of Approval then you get visa stamped at airport. This is different from Cambodia where you can have your visa stamped in more or less 30 mins without any advanced document.
