Vietnam e-visa system allows New Zealanders to apply for a visa online within minutes without going to the embassy. New Zealand citizens can apply for Vietnam e-visa, get it approved and delivered at their email address.

E-visa or electronic visa, is a document issued by the Vietnam Immigration Department to foreigners who wish to visit Vietnam. But, E-visa is applicable for only 80 countries and not for all the foreigners.

There are three options to get a visa to enter Vietnam, including the embassy, visa on arrival, and E-visa. Of course, we all know applying through embassy is long process and it consumes a lot of time.

New Zealand citizens who need to enter Vietnam multiple times and stay in the country for more than one month should consider getting the Visa on Arrival. Unlike the e-visa, which is only a single-entry visa, the Visa on Arrival will let you enter Vietnam multiple times and stay there for up to 90 days.

When e-visa is approved, New Zealand Passport Holders will receive instructions on your email on how you can download the e-visa. Follow the instructions and print a copy of the visa to bring on your trip.
