In an effort to encourage more visitors to come into their country, the government of Vietnam has made it easier for Slovakian citizens to enter the country. They have introduced the e-visa program that allows citizens of more than 80 countries to apply for a visa online. These countries include Slovakia.
So if you’re a citizen of Slovakia and you’re thinking of going to Vietnam soon, you should now go online and start your e-visa application. This visa can only be applied online. You don’t need to go to a Vietnam embassy or through an agency. All you need to do is connect to the Internet, open the website for visa application, and you’re good to go!
Aside from the e-visa, citizens of Slovakia can also apply for their visa through other means. They can apply through an embassy or request for a Visa on Arrival. But if you want the most convenient way to apply for your visa to Vietnam, getting an e-visa is highly recommended.
The process will only take a few minutes of your time. You just need to provide all the information that is being asked from you, such as your name, birth date, passport number, and expiration date. You will also be asked to provide a few requirements such as the scanned copy of your passport and a digital copy of your photos.
After about 3 business days, you will receive an email informing you of the status of your e-visa. You’ll be given a link where you can download the visa and all you will do is to print the document and carry it with you.
Here are more reasons why you should choose the e-visa option for your trip to Vietnam.
Once you have the Vietnam e-visa, you can use the visa to enter the country for the following purposes:
Remember that the e-visa will only allow you to stay in Vietnam for a maximum of 30 days. As a single-entry visa, you’re only allowed to use it once when entering the country. If you need a multiple-entry visa, the Visa on Arrival is a better option for you.
When applying for the e-visa online, you’ll be asked to upload some requirements. Here’s what you need to prepare for your visa application.
As mentioned, applying for the Vietnam e-visa will require you to fill out an application form online. In fact, this is the first thing you will do the moment you open the website. Make sure you fill out everything in order not to delay the e-visa processing. The form has three sections:
The visa option is where you will be asked to choose the kind of visa that you need to apply. It is also in this section that you need to provide your entry date and the date you plan on entering Vietnam.
On the application information section, that’s when you’ll key-in the important details, such as your complete name, birth date, and other personal details. Make sure you enter the information correctly in order not to encounter issues when entering the country. Review the information and proceed only if you are certain that everything is correct.
Finally, the last section is the payment. So be ready with your card or PayPal, or any mode of payment that you prefer. The cost of processing fee is $25 but non-refundable if you apply your e-visa at the government website (immigration.gov.vn)
The e-visa fee is higher but 100% money back guarantee if you apply your e-visa through a commercial website. If you need the visa earlier, then you need to pay more for rush processing. Once your payment is successful, you will receive an email as confirmation that your visa is already in process.
