This new regulation of the Vietnam Immigration Department is about Vietnam Visa for US citizens who wish to travel Vietnam for tourist purposes. It is really special priority given to the US citizens in a bid to attract more US tourist to the country and boost the domestic tourism industry.
It would be a good news for those who wish to stay in the country for long time or visit Vietnam frequently. However, it would also give an inflexibility for those who just want to stay in Vietnam for short time (1 month or less) as they might be charged higher stamping fee for unexpected long term visa 135 USD (instead of 25 USD/ 1 month single entry visa or 50 USD/ 3 month multiple entry visa as before).
• Visa stamping fee at the airport applied for all tourist visa for United States citizens is 135.00 USD.
• 1 year multiple entries tourist visa just allows maximum 90 days of staying for one entry. It means the United States travelers will have to do visa run each 90 days with tourist visa.
• For the United States citizens who want to stay in Vietnam for 1 year without doing visa run are suggested to apply for 1 year business visa (Visa approval letter fee: Just only 200.00 USD)
* We would like to offer the cheapest cost for 1 year tourist visa for US citizens which is just 25.00 USD via our website www.vietnamimmigration.org. Please note that the visa processing fee doesn’t include the stamping fee 135 USD which the travelers pay in cash at immigration counter at arrival airport.
