Croatian Citizens Can Apply for Vietnam E-visa

Last February 2017, the Vietnam government launched the Vietnam e-visa to foreign visitors of more than 80 countries. This includes citizens of Croatia. With the e-visa option, Croatian visitors no longer need to go to an embassy to get a visa. All they will need to do is to go online, fill out a form, and make a payment with card. After a few days, the visa will be made available online. Croatian travelers can print the visa and bring it to Vietnam. This document will allow them to enter the country and stay for a maximum of 30 days.

You are probably interested to learn more about this type of visa. If so, then here’s everything you need to know.

What is Vietnam E-Visa?

The Vietnam e-visa for citizens of Croatia is the latest type of visa that the Vietnam Immigration Department is offering to foreign travelers. Also called the electronic visa, this is an online version of the standard visa that foreign travelers must apply for in order to be allowed to enter Vietnam. It’s called an electronic visa because the process of application is done online. There’s no need to request for an appointment at a Vietnam embassy or queue at the visa counter just to get a visa stamp.

The Vietnam e-visa is a single entry visa. This means that you can use it only once to enter the country. Once you are inside the country, you are allowed to stay for a maximum of 30 days only. If you are going to extend your stay, you can request for a visa extension.

The e-visa will be processed for 3 business days from your date of application online. It could take a while depending on the number of applications that the Vietnam Immigration Department receives. For Croatian travelers who need the visa urgently, there’s an option for rush processing but this could cost you more. To avoid any problems, it is best to apply for the visa at least a week before you leave the country.

How To Apply for the Vietnam e-Visa?

Applying for the Vietnam e-visa for Croatian citizens is easy. You just need to access the Internet on your laptop or mobile phone. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Access the official website of the Vietnam Immigration.
  2. Carefully read the instructions and check the box stating you have fully understood the instructions. Then click “next”.
  3. Upload the documents that will be asked from you, such as the biographical page of your passport (Sample for passport’s bio page) and your passport size photos (Photo guide).
  4. Fill out the form with information that’s being required from you such as your full name, sex, nationality, religion, and birthdate. You also need to fill out the details of your passport, such as the passport number and expiration date.
  5. Next, you need to provide information about your trip to Vietnam. Enter the date of your entry to the country, exit date, and the address of the hotel where you will be staying.
  6. You will also be asked to provide your contact details, such as your phone number and email address. It’s important that you provide the correct email address because this is where they will send you the visa copy.
  7. After you have verified the information, proceed to the next page where you will be asked to enter your card details for the payment of the processing fee.

When your payment is successful, you will receive a confirmation along with a code. Please take note of the code so you can use it to access your e-visa at a later time.

Using the Vietnam E-visa When Entering Vietnam

After you submit the application form, wait for a few days for the e-visa to be processed. You can visit the website after around 3 business days and enter the code that was given to you. When your visa is already processed, you should be able to access a copy of it. Save it on your computer and print a copy. To be sure, print two copies of the e-visa just in case you will misplace it. Present this to the Vietnam immigration at the airport along with your passport. You will then be able to enter the country and enjoy your Vietnam holiday.

As you can see, applying for a Vietnam e-visa for Croatian citizens is an easy process. It’s less complicated than applying for the standard visa or the Visa on Arrival. But in order not to encounter problems, kindly double-check the information you have entered. Otherwise, the processing of your visa could be delayed or you could be denied entry to Vietnam. So before submitting the form online, spend some time double-checking the details, especially your passport information.
