Unveiling Vietnam’s 90-Day E-Visas: An Exciting Opportunity for Ísland Citizens

Traveling to Vietnam has never been easier for citizens of Ísland. With the recent update to the government’s resolution 127/NQ-CP, Ísland citizens can now apply for a 90-day e-visa starting from August 15, 2023. This exciting development allows travelers to explore the beauty of Vietnam for an extended period without the need for a traditional visa application process. In this article, we will explore the benefits of the new e-visa system and provide valuable tips for a smooth and stress-free application process.

Applying for the Vietnam E-visa

Gone are the days of visiting the Vietnamese embassy or consulate to apply for a visa. With the new e-visa system, Ísland citizens can conveniently apply online from the comfort of their own homes. The official website provides a user-friendly interface and a simple application form, making the process quick and straightforward. This means no more long queues or time-consuming paperwork. Applying for a Vietnam e-visa has never been easier!

Benefits of the Vietnam E-visa

One of the most significant advantages of the Vietnam e-visa is the convenience it offers to travelers. With the e-visa, Ísland citizens can enter Vietnam through any of the 13 airports, 16 land border gates, or 13 sea border gates designated for e-visa holders. This extensive network of entry points ensures that travelers have flexibility and options when planning their trip to Vietnam.

Moreover, the e-visa allows for multiple entries, making it even more appealing for frequent travelers. No longer will visitors have to apply for a new visa each time they return to Vietnam. This feature is particularly valuable for those who wish to explore neighboring countries and return to Vietnam without any hassle.

E-visa Application Process and Fees

To obtain a Vietnam e-visa, Ísland citizens need to complete the online application form and pay the required fee. The e-visa fee is US$25 for single-entry and US$50 for multiple entry. It is important to note that the e-visa fee is non-refundable, regardless of whether the visa application is approved or denied. However, considering the convenience and time-saving benefits of the e-visa system, the fee is a worthwhile investment for a hassle-free travel experience.

E-visa Processing Time

In most cases, the processing time for a Vietnam e-visa is 3 working days. However, during peak seasons or after holidays, it may take slightly longer. Therefore, it is advisable for travelers to apply for their e-visa well in advance to avoid any last-minute delays or frustrations. Planning ahead ensures a smooth journey and allows for peace of mind.

Commercial Websites for Expedited Service

For travelers in a rush or those who prefer to have their e-visa delivered on time, several commercial websites offer expedited services. These websites provide a user-friendly interface, simplified application process, and a guarantee to deliver the e-visa promptly. While the cost of these services may be higher than the official e-visa application, they provide a valuable solution for those who prioritize speed and convenience.


The introduction of the Vietnam e-visa for citizens of Ísland brings exciting opportunities for travel enthusiasts. With a 90-day validity period, multiple entries, and an easy online application process, exploring the wonders of Vietnam has never been more accessible. Whether you choose to apply through the official website or opt for expedited services, the e-visa ensures a hassle-free experience. So mark your calendars for August 15, 2023, and get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey through the captivating landscapes and rich cultural heritage of Vietnam.
