Vietnam e-visa for Citizens of Mongolia

Mongolian citizens who are thinking of visiting Vietnam soon must apply for a visa prior to their trip. Otherwise, they will not be allowed to enter the country. Thankfully, Mongolians are eligible for the e-visa. This is an electronic version of a Vietnam visa that can be acquired online.

Thanks to the e-visa, applying for a visa to Vietnam is no longer as complicated as it used to be. The application of this visa will only take a few minutes of your time. You just go online, access the website, fill out the form, make a payment, and that’s it! So here’s what you need to know about the Vietnam e-visa.

What’s a Vietnam e-visa?

Also called the Electronic visa, the Vietnam e-visa is one of those visas that the Vietnam Immigration would issue to foreigners who wanted to visit their country. This was introduced last February of 2017 and has since been successful in inviting foreign visitors to come to Vietnam.

Ever since the e-visa program was launched, the number of foreign visits to Vietnam has significantly increased. Because of its success, the government has decided to increase the number of nationalities that will be eligible for this visa.

Vietnam E-visa Requirements for Mongolian Citizens

Mongolians are among those nationalities that are eligible for the Vietnam e-visa. So what are the requirements that a Mongolian citizen must submit when applying for this visa?

  • Valid email address where you will receive updates regarding the processing of your e-visa.
  • Scanned copy of your passport’s biographical page. It should be in jpeg format since it will be uploaded in the application form.
  • Passport-sized photos with white background. Photo Guide.
  • Mongolian passport. It must be valid for at least six months from your entry date to Vietnam.
  • International debit or credit card for the payment of the e-visa fee.

How to Apply for the Vietnam e-Visa?

Compared to other visa types, the e-visa is the easiest to apply. Here’s how to apply for this visa:

  1. Go online and access the website where you can apply for the e-visa.
  2. Fill out the application form. Review the information entered before proceeding to the payment page.
  3. Pay for the processing fee using your card.
  4. Wait for the confirmation email and take note of the registration code. You’ll need this later on to access the visa copy.

You should receive the status of your busy after 3 -5 business days. If you have not heard from them after 5 days, send them an email for a follow-up. You might have entered your email address incorrectly.

Once you have a copy of your e-visa, print it out and bring it with you on your trip.

Processing Time of the Vietnam e-Visa

The usual processing time for the Vietnam e-visa is 3 – 5 business days. However, it could take more than this during the peak season when the Vietnam Immigration will receive an overwhelming number of visa applications. Nevertheless, the processing time of the e-visa is definitely faster than the processing time of a standard visa. To avoid issues, it is highly advised to apply for the visa two weeks before your scheduled trip to the country.

Sometimes, the reason behind the delay of the visa processing has to do with the inaccuracies of information submitted. This is why it’s important that you carefully review the information you entered on your visa application form.

Ports of Entry Where the e-Visa is Accepted

Unlike the Visa on Arrival that you can only use at the airports of Vietnam, the Vietnam e-visa can also be used in the seaports and land borders. Here’s a list of those places where the visa can be accepted:
