Upon arrival at Vietnam airport

At the immigration check-out, the immigration officer will check your passport and e-visa result to make sure they are valid.

If all the information is correct, the officer will stamp your passport and give it back to you. Then, you can head to baggage claim areas to collect your belongings.

Congratulations! You are now free to exit the airport and start your journey in Vietnam!
