Citizens of Liechtenstein who are planning a trip to Vietnam should now start applying for the Vietnam e-visa. This is an electronic visa that’s issued to foreign visitors who are traveling to Vietnam and require a visa to enter the country. Unlike the regular visa that you need to acquire from a Vietnam embassy, the e-visa is a type of travel document that you can get online.
There’s an online application form that you need to fill out. You need to provide your name, birth date, address, and other personal details. As for the processing fee, you can pay for it using your debit card or credit card. Once the visa is approved, it will be sent to your email in a PDF copy. Print the visa so you can present it at the passport control upon arriving in Vietnam for your holiday.
To be approved of the e-visa, you need to provide certain requirements. The requirements are similar to what you will submit when applying for a regular visa. So here are the things you need to prepare:
One of the biggest advantages of Vietnam e-visa is that it’s so easy to apply. In fact, the entire process involves three easy steps:
Liechtenstein visitors who are holding an e-visa can stay in Vietnam for a maximum of 30 days or one month. Take note that this is a single-entry visa, which means you can use it to enter the country only once. You should be able to get out of the country before the 30-day period expires in order not to be slapped with a penalty. There is an option to extend the validity of your visa. You can look for an agency that can reapply for the visa extension on your behalf. Of course, this comes with a fee.
If you already know ahead of time that you will be staying in Vietnam for more than 30 days, you might as well choose a different visa option. For instance, you can apply for the Vietnam Visa on Arrival that will let you stay in the country for 90 days. You can even choose a multiple-entry visa for this option. But the only downside with this visa is that you will have to queue at the airport when you arrive in Vietnam.
The standard processing time of the e-visa is 3-5 business days. But there are certain situations that the visa processing could be delayed. For instance, during the peak season, Vietnam immigration would receive plenty of applications for the e-visa. This can delay the processing. If possible, apply for your visa at least two weeks before you fly to the country.
For travelers who need the visa urgently, you can choose the rush processing option through an agency website. The fee is higher, but you can get your visa fast. Please remember to choose agency offers 100% money back guarantee to protect yourself.

The cost of the e-visa processing will vary greatly, depending on the processing time you have chosen. It will generally cost $25, but you could end up paying more if you will have it expedited. So to avoid paying more, apply for your visa as early as possible. Also, if you’re going to apply your e-visa through an agency, then you’ll have to pay an added fee as well.
