You may wonder whether you need a Vietnam transit visa to enter the country, if you are arriving Vietnam for a short time between flights to another city or country. It depends on the situation and the hours you spend in Vietnam.

As soon as your replacement passport is issued, the Embassy or the Consulate-General will provide you with a letter to the Vietnamese Immigration Department requesting their assistance to issue an exit or replacement visa in your new passport. Vietnamese authorities will not permit you to depart Vietnam until your exit visa is issued.

The Vietnam Immigration requires foreign visitors to Vietnam to apply for their visa at least two weeks before their travel date. This is for them to have enough time to process the visa.

This will mainly depend on the number of passengers that they need to cater to the Landing Visa counter. If you are travelling during the peak season, you could get your visa within 30 – 45 minutes.

There’s no need to go to the Vietnam embassy when using the Landing Visa at International Airport of Vietnam. This visa can be claimed only at the airport of Vietnam.

Yes, but you need to get in touch with a local travel agent to process the extension of your visa. But there are situations where the extension request will be refused, such as when you overstayed in Vietnam or you had some problems with the Vietnam Immigration during your previous visits in the country.

You should apply for the landing visa as early as you can, although the Vietnam Immigration would recommend applying at least two weeks ahead of your trip. The usual processing time is 2 – 4 business days.
