Advantages of the Vietnam e-Visa

If you have been to Vietnam before, then you knew that there are different types of Vietnam visas that you can apply. The most common type of visa is the one where you can apply from a Vietnam embassy, which is usually the case for most nationalities, especially those that don’t qualify for the Vietnam e-visa. But this would require you to schedule an appointment from the embassy and visit personally to hand over the requirements. This can be really inconvenient, if not time-consuming for most people.

To avoid all these hassles, the Vietnam Immigration has offered the e-visa option. With this visa, all you need to do is to go online, access the website for the Vietnam e-visa application and fill out the form completely. As for the payment, you can pay with your debit card or credit card, which is definitely very convenient.

It will only take 3 business days for the Vietnam Immigration to process your e-visa. In fact, you could get the e-visa sent to your email in as fast as 24 hours! There may be instances that the e-visa could take longer to be processed, but this is very rare. For as long as you fill out the form correctly, there should be no delays in the processing of your e-visa.


The online tourist visa that you can get for Vietnam is valid for only one entry into the country and you can stay for up to thirty days during this time.  The same tourist e-visa cannot be used for leaving and coming to the country one more time.

The usual processing time for Vietnam e-visa for tourist takes anywhere between 24 hours to 72 hours. Only in rare scenarios it can take longer than that.

Here is the link of the official website of the government for Vietnam e-visa :

It takes anywhere around 24 to 72 hours to process the application. However, if there are errors in the application or if the form is incomplete, it might take longer.

So far, citizens of 81 countries (Country list for Vietnam e-visa) can apply for a Vietnam e-visa. e-Visa Vietnam allows visitors to stay in Vietnam for up to 30 days, with one entry (1 month single entry).

Children who have their own passport should submit a separate application for Vietnam e-visa. Accompanied children who is included in their father or mother’s passport should be in same visa application for Vietnam e-visa with their father or mother.

The reason that most of the people opt for the online mode of application for the Vietnam e-visa from China is the hassle free application process that it offers. Firstly, you don’t need to rush to the concerned embassy time and again along with the essential documents for submission.
