Vietnam Visa

What should I pay attention to when applying for visas to Vietnam?

You are a Taiwanese citizen, and you want to travel to Vietnam. However, the place where you live is too far away from the Vietnamese consulate in Taiwan or is abroad, so it is not convenient to go to the embassy to apply.
Fortunately, there is another way to apply for a visa in addition to going to the consulate. Below is some Vietnam visa advice we want to provide you when applying for visas to Vietnam.

Please understand, what is the visa for entry to Vietnam?

Vietnam visa on arrival is one of the types of Vietnam visas and is a very convenient visa:

  • No need to apply to the Vietnamese Embassy
  • No need to submit your passport or any materials at the time of application
  • Receive the approval letter (by e-mail) and pick up the visa when you arrive at the airport.

Please follow the steps below to apply for a visa to Vietnam:

– Step 1: Fill in a visa online application on our website (requires the correct date of your arrival in Vietnam and the name of Vietnam International Airport). Please don’t forget to check your information again and again. Waiting until the airport found the information is wrong, it was troublesome at that time; if the information is incorrect, the flight company staff will not let you board the plane. After completing the payment, the visa service fee will be paid. After the application is successful, we will send you an e-mail to inform you of the successful payment.
– Step 2: Within two working days, you will receive a Vietnam visa approval letter e-mail (also check if the personal information is correct) and the Vietnam application form (Entry/Exit form) to print them over…
– Step 3: Prepare your original passport, two passport photos, a copy of the visa approval letter, a completed form NA1, and US dollars in cash (US$) to pay for the visa stamped fee.
– Step 4: Upon arrival at the Vietnam airport, you will see the Visa Office or the Visa Office. You can get a visa by giving all the prepared articles and money to them.

What you should pay attention to:

  • Some passengers are worried that the visa office will not open because the plane arrived in Vietnam very late. Please don’t worry; the visa office will open 24/24 hours.
  • Some passengers have already received the approval letter, but they cannot go to Vietnam that day because of something happening. For example, you apply for a visa for a single month. The application time is Entry on February 1, 2018 – Return on February 10, 2018. In normal times, you will be approved in the approval letter (February 1 – March 1) in Vietnam. You can come to Vietnam during this period but your staying in Vietnam cannot exceed March 1. If you want to go to Vietnam on January 31, you have to apply for a new one.
  • The visa authorization letter (approval letter) is a letter got approved, signed, and stamped by the Immigration Department of Vietnam (on behalf of the Vietnamese government). It allows passengers to board one of the four major international airports in Vietnam and receive an entry visa at the airport.

Four common mistakes when applying for visas to Vietnam

You can’t get a Vietnamese airport entry visa without applying online. Many individuals believe they can apply for a visa straight at Vietnam airports without registering online. It’s not true. If you do not apply for a visa in advance on the Internet, there is no approval letter (this letter can prove that you can get a permission at Vietnam International Airport) and the flight company’s personnel will deny you access to the aircraft.

  1. Vietnam visas are not available for entry to all the airports

The visa on arrival is only applicable to the seven major international airports in Vietnam such as Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City, Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi city, Da Nang International Airport in Da Nang city, Cam Ranh International Airport  near Nha Trang City, Lien Khuong International Airport in Da Lat city and Phu Quoc International Airport in Phu Quoc Island.

  1. Misspelling

Many applicants fill in the application form online with the wrong details such as the full name on the passport, passport number, or date of birth. This problem is very serious in the case of a visa on arrival in Vietnam. Because the information of the approved letter does not match the passport, you will be rejected by the airline. So, make sure you enter all the information correctly and carefully.

  1. Date of Arrival

Many people think that visas will be valid from the date they enter Vietnam, not from the date they apply for a visa it’s not true. The visa will be valid from the date you apply for the visa, NOT the date of your entry. So, before you go to Vietnam, you must make sure when to enter. Take it for an example:

  • Your online application for entry date: arrival in Vietnam on November 1, 2018 – return on November 10, 2018.
  • Visa type: Single
  • The approval letter will be approved as follows: Applicants can enter Vietnam from November 1, 2018, to December 1, 2018.
  • As the saying goes, the approval letter states: When you enter Vietnam during the period from 2018/11/01 – 2018/12/01, you will need to return before December 1, 2018.
  • If you arrive in Vietnam on November 25, you can. However, you must leave before December 1, 2018.

With the rapidly improving tourism in Vietnam, citizens of Taiwan need a visa to enter Vietnam. As a tourist, you might have questions about the validity period and price regulations about your tourist visa before arrival.

Vietnam visa is required for all Taiwanese citizens. Taiwanese citizens are NOT eligible for e-visa.
