Apply Vietnam visa online step 1

Complete our easy online application

Apply Vietnam visa online step 1

Confirm and pay for the visa fee

Get approval letter

Receive and print the Approval letter

Get visa stamped

Get your visa stamp upon arrival at airports

  1. Step 1

    Get started by filling out the secure online form. This step is necessary for obtaining an approval letter, which you will need to show upon arrival in Vietnam to get your visa stamp.

    Fill in the application using the correct information regarding your name, passport number, date of birth, nationality, gender, and arrival date. We accept most major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

  2. Step 2

    Confirm and pay.

    Vietnam visa fees are quite reasonable. For the visa approval letter, you pay a fee online, $17 and up, depending on the type of visa and how many you are requesting. 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 entries. 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.

  3. Step 3

    Receive and print the approval letter. As soon as you submit your application and payment, we 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 (4cm x 6cm) passport photos.

  4. 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 by previous download from our website). 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 you will be ready for a rewarding visit.
