Vietnam e-Visa Application Procedures

The application procedure online is really easy. But, the information given should be checked and reviewed before submission. Actual copies may be called upon at any time. The application is usually processed and approved between one to three days. Upon approval, the visa will be sent to the e-mail ID provided by the applicant. However, due to the general delay in the bureaucratic procedure, it will be safe to apply at least a week before the date of the journey.

The visa must be printed by the applicant and presented in front of the appropriate customs authority upon request. Also, if a person holds more than one passport, then the passport whose information was given at the time of application must be presented.
