The Government of Vietnam has made it easier for citizens of Micronesia to come to their country. Micronesians are among those foreign nationalities that require a visa to enter Vietnam.

The e-visa is definitely easier and more convenient to apply compared to the traditional Vietnam visa. It’s because the visa application will be done online. There’s no need to visit a local embassy anymore. You just go online, access the website, fill out the form, make a payment, and send in your application! In 3 – 5 business days, you’ll get an email regarding the status of your e-visa. If the visa is approved, you can download a copy and save it on your computer or mobile phone. Then bring a printed copy so you can present it at passport control when entering Vietnam.

For one, the e-visa is the fastest and easiest way to get travel authorization to enter Vietnam. While it’s still possible to get a visa from an embassy, applying for the e-visa is much easier. There’s no longer a need to personally visit the embassy to submit your application and requirements. Everything has to be done online.
