The official website allows applicants to complete the process from the comfort of their own homes, eliminating the need for time-consuming visits to embassies or consulates.

The Benefits of the 90-day e-visa

The 90-day e-visa offers a multitude of benefits for Icelandic travelers planning to explore Vietnam.

This convenience is highly appreciated by tourists, as it enables them to explore neighboring countries without any visa-related concerns.

Entry points and processing time

Vietnam has made it incredibly convenient for e-visa holders to enter and exit the country.

Whether you arrive by air, land, or sea, you can rest assured that your e-visa will grant you access to the beauty of Vietnam.

The e-visa processing time is typically three working days under normal circumstances. However, it’s important to note that during peak seasons or after holidays, processing times may be slightly longer. Therefore, we advise you to plan your trip accordingly and apply for your e-visa well in advance to avoid any potential delays.
