The citizens of San Marino are among those nationalities that need a visa to be able to enter Vietnam. Thankfully, applying for a Vietnam visa now so easy, thanks to the e-visa program. Under this program, citizens of San Marino can apply for their visa over the Internet. There’s a form that you need to fill out and you don’t have to go to a Vietnamese embassy to personally send in your application.
Once your Vietnam e-visa application is approved, you will be sent an email to inform you of this. In the email, there’s a link that you need to click in order to download your e-visa copy. You will be required to print the visa so you can bring it with you on your trip and present to the Immigration Officer upon entry.
The e-visa is an electronic travel authorization document that the Vietnam Immigration will issue to foreign visitors to Vietnam. With this visa, you’d be able to enter the country and enjoy a holiday for 30 days. It’s single entry so you can only use it once when entering Vietnam. But the biggest benefit of this visa is that it’s very convenient to apply. You just go online and fill out the form and that’s it. No need to queue at the embassy or at the airport.
Another benefit of getting an e-visa for your Vietnam trip is that you can use it to enter in various entry points all over the country. Aside from the airports, your e-visa will allow you to enter the country through land borders and seaports. So if you’re going cruising or if you’re traveling by land to Vietnam, this visa will surely be useful for you.
For citizens of San Marino who need to apply for the Vietnam e-visa, here are the requirements that you need:
Once you have the requirements above, it’s time to apply for your e-visa. Here are the steps to follow:
The standard processing time of e-visa is 3 business days although there are situations where it will take more than that. For instance, during the peak season when Vietnam welcomes millions of tourists, the processing of your e-visa could be delayed.
Once your e-visa is approved, an email will be sent to you that include instructions on how you can download a copy of the e-visa. The e-visa will be in PDF format and you must print it to bring on your trip.
The best thing about getting the e-visa is that you no longer need to queue at a visa counter once you arrive in Vietnam. You just proceed directly to the Passport Control and give a copy of your e-visa along with your passport. The immigration officer will then stamp your passport and let you into the country.
As mentioned, the visa is accepted in various points of entry all over the country. So whether you’re traveling by plane, on a boat, or through the land crossing in a bus or car, this visa is very useful.
Yes, it is possible to extend the validity of your e-visa if you decide to stay more than 30 days but you need to look for an agency that can do this for you.
The only thing you will pay for the e-visa is the processing fee, which you need to pay in advance using your card. You don’t have to pay for anything as you arrive in the country.
