Validity and duration for Vietnam e-visa for tourist

The online tourist visa that you can get for Vietnam is valid for only one entry into the country and you can stay for up to thirty days during this time.  The same tourist e-visa cannot be used for leaving and coming to the country one more time.

You have another alternative to not applying online for the e-visa. You can choose to go for visa on arrival, which is available at the international airport of Vietnam for most of the same nations that can opt for e-Visa. For visa on arrival, you will get a validation period of about thirty or ninety days.

  • Tourism
