Updated July 14, 2023

Table of Contents

When you apply for ABROADER’s internship, study abroad, or study tour programs in Vietnam, we will support you with your visa application process. In most cases, you will need to be granted either a business visa or an e-visa.

The detailed information on visa to Vietnam is listed below:

Visa Application Documents


If you are applying to our programs, you will need to prepare:

  • A scan of the passport page: Full page including photo, personal information, and ICAO lines. Passport valid for a minimum of 06 months at the date of entry and with at least 02 blank pages available for the Vietnam visa
  • Home country information
  • Home university/ institute information (major/ year – semester/ current degree)
  • Emergency contact

To prepare for a smooth arrival in Vietnam, we encourage you to submit documents for the visa application as soon as you can as it is better before you book and pay for your flight tickets (at least 1 month before your desired flight date). Our program coordinator will also support and guide you through the procedures. 

The visa duration covers your stay in Vietnam during ABROADER’s program. If you plan to extend your time staying in Vietnam in advance, we suggest you prepare and consult with us while planning your trip.

Upon arrival at Vietnam airport

When you get off the airplane (at Noi Bai Airport for Hanoi and Tan San Nhat Airport for Ho Chi Minh City), come to “Visa on arrival” counter to present the following documents to get your visa: 

  • Original passport 
  • 02 recent color photos 
  • Stamping fee: USD 25 (for 1-month and 3-month single-entry visa) or USD 50 (for 1-month and 3-month multiple-entry visa) in cash.
  • Vietnam visa approval letter received from ABROADER
  • Letter of acceptance/invitation from the Vietnamese host school/company

Vietnam E-visa (Now valid to 90 days)

For those who join our Study abroad / Study tour (Faculty-led program) / Internships in Vietnam program for 4 to 8 weeks, we would recommend you to apply for an e-visa to Vietnam. 

While e-visa agent can apply on behalf of the applicant, you can apply for an e-visa to Vietnam by yourself. Like other types of visa, the Vietnam e-visa is also a kind of travel document granted by the Vietnam Department of Immigration, to provide permission to enter Vietnam. 

E-visa is issued via an electronic system that’s valid for 90 days (from Aug 15, 2023), multiple entry and no need to go through new visa procedures. The total e-visa fee per application from Aug 15, 2023 is US $50 ($10 increase compared to 2022).

But don’t worry, the application process is simple and we will guide you throughout the process 24/7:
