Processing Time of the Vietnam e-Visa

As mentioned, the normal processing of the Vietnam e-Visa is within three business days. That’s faster than applying for a standard visa from an embassy that could take weeks. In fact, there are also instances when the visa is approved in only 24 hours.

But it’s worth noting that the processing time will also depend on certain factors. There are rare instances that the visa will be delayed, especially during the peak season. Sometimes, the inaccuracy of the information provided on the application form can further delay the visa processing. Also, Vietnam immigration is closed during public holidays and this can also delay the visa processing.

To be sure, it is highly advisable to apply your Vietnam e-Visa at least a week before your trip.
