ABROADER April 06, 2022 3 minute read

Vietnam e-visa requirements

To best prepare for the application, you should get ready for all the documents below:

  • Your valid passport in at least 6 months after the expected date of entering Vietnam and having at least 02 blank pages
  • Credit card or Debit card that can make payment online
  • Portrait photo (4x6cm): Looking straight, without glasses and white background
  • Image of Passport data page: Full page including photo, personal information and ICAO lines

*Notes: Passport photo must follow these more detailed standards:

  • Applicants must submit a passport photo taken within the last 01 year, 4x6cm in size, straight face, no hat, no dark or tinted glass. Both ears must be shown.
  • The photo must be clear for identification. The photo must not be edited anyhow.
  • The photo can be in colors/ black and white.
  • The background must be white/bright. Photos on dark and/or decorated backgrounds will not be accepted.

Detailed steps:

After having necessary documents, what you need to do is following the steps here:

Step 1: Access the link https://evisa.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn, then choose “e-Visa” (Electronic visa). Then you will be directed to “E-VISA PAGE”.

Step 2: Choose the box “FOR FOREIGNERS”

Step 3: Read the full-text description carefully, confirm your understanding, then click “Next”

Step 4: Complete the application form by uploading your 2 photos and inputting the required information.

Personal details section:

  • Images: The 2 pictures you need to upload include your Vietnam e-visa photo and passport data page. They must be in either jpg, jpeg, or gif format and less than 2MB. For portrait photos, the picture has to comply with the Vietnam visa photo requirements. Meanwhile, the passport page picture needs to show full information.
  • Vietnam e-visa full name: You must enter your full name in the same order as the one in your passport (Please note that Vietnam e-visa name order is a common mistake that applicants make when they switch the sequence of last name and first name while the request is First name – Middle name – Last name).

  • Date of birth: type the date in DD/MM/YYYY format or choose from the availability calendar. If there’s no exact date, you can tick “Only year is known” next to it. However, the provided information must coincide with your date of birth in your passport.
  • Current nationality: You will choose 1 of 81 nationalities in the dropdown list eligible for a Vietnam e-visa. And it is the nationality indicated in the passport you use to apply for the e-visa, too.
  • Nationality at birth: This is optional. You can input if you have a different nationality when you were born.
  • Vietnam e-visa religion: provide your actual religion or type “None”/ “No”/ “N/A” if there is no religion. You can’t leave it blank since the Vietnam e-visa religion is a compulsory one.

  • Phone number: it’s up to you to either fill it out or ignore it.

  • Vietnam e-visa intended temporary residential address in Vietnam: this can be your booked hotel address, apartment, host’s family house, your relative/friend’s home, or any sponsored accommodation (Vietnam e-visa temporary residential address is the one in Vietnam, not permanent address in your home country).

    • For ABROADER’s program, it’s either “HANOI City” or “HO CHI MINH City”.
  • Inviting/guaranteeing agency/organization (if any): If there’s any agency or company guarantee for your trip, you can provide its name and official address in Vietnam. For ABROADER’s program participants:
  • Under 14 years old accompanying child(ren) included in your passport (if any): in case your children who are in your passport go with you to Vietnam, you need to enter their information including their full name, sex, and date of birth, passport photo.
    • This does not apply to ABROADER’s program so you should leave it blank.

Visa request section:

  • Grant Evisa valid from: the default date the intended date of entry you provided above and “To” date is 30 days later. If your request is different, you can manually key in DD/MM/YYYY format.
  • Allowed to entry through checkpoint: choose entry points among 33 eligible ports (airport, landport, seaport) in the list.
    • If you arrive in “HANOI City”, your checkpoint will be “Noi bai Int Airport (Hanoi)”
    • If you arrive in “HO CHI MINH City”, your checkpoint will be “Tan San Nhat Int Airport (Ho Chi Minh City)”
  • Exit through checkpoint: choose entry points among 33 eligible ports (airport, landport, seaport) in the list. Both entry and exit points can’t be changed once your e-visa is issued; therefore, you must be sure that you are able to go through those checkpoints.
    • If you leave from “HANOI City”, your checkpoint will be “Noi bai Int Airport (Hanoi)”
    • If you leave from “HO CHI MINH City”, your checkpoint will be “Tan San Nhat Int Airport (Ho Chi Minh City)”
    • Since many of our programs or your chosen internship’s duration (In-person internships in Vietnam & Physiotherapy internships) will normally have a duration of more than 30 days, a Weekend trip included as a Visa renewal will be available with the coordination and support from ABROADER)

Finally, put a tick in the disclaimer box and enter the security code below. After you complete filling out all the fields, don’t forget to review carefully and ensure all provided information is correct. Otherwise, your Vietnam e-visa registration might be rejected by the Official.

Then, you will receive a verification code which must be saved for a later status check.

Step 5: Pay the e-visa fee
The fee is 25 USD and must be paid online right after the submission by credit card or debit card. You can choose the most convenient way for you.
Remember that this fee will not be refunded whether your application is approved or not.

Step 6: Get result and receive Vietnam e-visa.
The processing time often lasts for 3 days but sometimes even longer depending on the number of applicants or public holiday.

The result will not be notified through email (However, it is recommended to also check your email Spam box and storage just in case) or mobile phone so you need to check the website regularly after 3 days since your submission date. To check the status, access this link and input the required information.
