Are you a citizen of Slovenia and you plan on going to Vietnam soon? If you are, then you’ll be happy to know that getting a visa is now so easy for you. As a citizen of Slovenia, you are eligible for the Vietnam e-visa. This means that you can easily apply for your visa online.
The e-visa program was launched in February 2017. This was part of the Vietnam Government’s plan to invite more foreign visitors into the country. This visa is only applicable to certain nationalities and Slovenian citizens are among them. With this type of visa, there’s no longer a need for you to go to a Vietnam embassy to apply. You just need to connect to the Internet and fill out the visa application form online.
Once your e-visa is approved, it will be sent to your email. All you will do is to download a copy on your computer. Print at least two copies and bring them with you on your trip. This is what you will give the immigration officer in order to be allowed entry to Vietnam.
It’s very easy to apply for the Vietnam e-visa. You are only required to submit a few requirements. Below are the requirements needed:
The standard processing fee of the Vietnam e-visa for citizens of Slovenia is 3 business days. But it could take more than that depending on the time of your application. If it’s the peak travel season, the visa could take longer to be processed. You will be asked to choose the processing time of your e-visa. Here are your options
You will have to pay $25 if you apply your e-visa at the government website (immigration.gov.vn), however, the government website run non-refunable policy.
The cost will be higher If you apply your e-visa through an agency website, please note that private website offers 100% money back guarantee. The e-visa processing fee will depend on the processing time you have chosen. If you will settle with the standard processing time of 3 days, you’ll only pay around $35. But if you want the rush processing, it will cost around $40 and the super rush could cost up to $80. Remember that the rate will vary from time to time so it is best to check in advance before you start with your application.
Aside from the requirements mentioned above, there are no other requirements that you need to prepare or submit for your e-visa application. But remember that the e-visa will only have a maximum validity of 30 days. If you plan on extending your holiday, you will have to pay for an agency that can reapply your visa and sponsor your stay in Vietnam.
Slovenian citizens who hold a Vietnam e-visa are required to carry the visa with them at all times. To be sure, print at least two copies of the visa so you will have something extra in case you lose one copy.
For children who are traveling with their parents, they are required to have their own e-visa. But if they share a passport with their parents, then they can share the e-visa with their parents, too.
If your e-visa will be rejected, you can no longer be refunded of the processing fee that you have paid if apply though government website. Also, the Vietnam Immigration Dept. reserves the right not to reveal the reason behind your e-visa rejection.
Although the standard processing of the visa is 3 days, it could get delayed in some instances. To be sure, it is highly advised to apply for your e-visa at least two weeks before your travel date.
