When to apply for eVisa

You can apply for your Vietnam eVisa as early as you like. The eVisa processing takes 3 working days, so you must apply at least 3 working days prior to your trip. In certain instances, it can take longer. I highly recommend applying at least two weeks prior to your trip. 

How long can you stay in Vietnam on eVisa

With an E-Visa, you can stay up to 90 days or until the expiry of your eVisa, whichever is shorter. The immigration officer will write the date by which you must exit the country on the entry stamp in your passport. Usually, this exit date on your passport will match the expiration date of your eVisa.

You can apply for the eVisa on the official Vietnam E-Visa Portal . You would need a scan of your passport data/ID page, a digital photo and a credit/debit card.

The eVisa processing time is 3 working days, not including the day of application. If it’s taking longer than 3 working days, contact the e-Visa support.

After you get off your flight, walk towards immigration/passport control. If you are a visa-exempt national, present your passport and boarding pass. If you hold an eVisa, present your passport, boarding pass and a print or soft copy of your Vietnam eVisa to the immigration officer. 

The immigration officer may ask a few questions such as how long you plan to stay, what you would like to do in Vietnam, etc. 

The immigration office may also ask to see your return ticket. If you are flying on a one-way ticket, make sure to carry proof of an onward flight ticket to avoid any trouble at immigration.

Leaving Vietnam by air

Vietnam employs manned passport control. You will go through passport control on your exit. Present your passport and boarding pass. The immigration will not ask any questions unless you have overstayed your visa.

Vietnam has streamlined its visa process in recent years. About 25 nationalities from Southeast Asia and Europe do not require a visa to enter Vietnam. Nationals of all countries and territories are eligible to apply for eVisa.

How to get the new 90-day vietnam tourist visa.

W hether you’re daydreaming about navigating the glittering beehive of Ho Chi Minh City, criss-crossing the chaotic streets of Hanoi, or tanning on the beaches of Da Nang, you’ll eventually encounter the question of what documents you’ll need to travel to Vietnam.

For travelers with passport privilege, it could come as a surprise that securing a tourist visa ahead of time is mandatory, as anyone who travels to Vietnam will learn. Until August of 2023, Vietnam’s tourist visa was only valid for 30 days, causing a lot of headaches for those who wanted to live in Vietnam or use it as a base for traveling around Asia.

I spent a month in Da Nang, Vietnam last year, taking day and weekend trips around the country. I lamented a lot about the 30-day tourist visa, wishing I could stay longer without the headache of a visa run – having to leave the country and re-enter just to secure a new visa. When I spoke with expats who lived in Da Nang full time, many said they were traveling to the nearest border (by land or air), spending enough time there for their new Vietnam visa to process, then turning around and coming right back every month. It seemed like a huge and frequent hassle.

Fortunately, the 90-day Vietnam visa launched in late summer of 2023. Here’s everything to know about getting a 90-day tourist Vietnam visa, plus suggestions on where to base yourself for up to three months in the spectacular country.

How to get a 90-day Vietnam visa for American tourists

Travelers were able to start applying for the updated 90-day tourist visa in August of 2023. It’s an e-Visa, so you’ll apply and acquire it online. There is no visa-on-arrival option for US citizens. Everyone traveling to Vietnam will need a visa (unless you hold a Vietnamese passport), so this process is a necessary evil.

You’ll have two choices when applying for your 90-day Vietnam visa: the single-entry or multiple-entry option. The single-entry visa is $25, while the multiple-entry visa is $50. Their name describes their difference. The single-entry visa is for those who don’t plan to leave Vietnam during the duration of their stay. If you do, you’ll need to re-apply for a new visa to re-enter the country, just like you had to do with the old 30-day visa. A multiple-entry visa allows you to come and go as you please over the course of your allotted 90 days, without the need to apply for another visa.

The application and approval process is the same for both visas, and since the multiple-entry visa costs just $50, the flexibility that the multiple entry option offers is worth it – especially with other beautiful countries like Cambodia and Laos so close by.

Required documentation

On the application, you’ll need to upload a photo of your passport and a passport picture. You can get professional passport photos done for just a few bucks at stores like CVS and RiteAid, but it’s also easy (and free) to take a picture of yourself with a white background and edit it to their specifications. Just make sure nothing is blocking your face and you’re well-lit. And don’t smile.

The application process

90-day vietnam visa application page

Make sure you apply for your Vietnam visa through the official website . This is the correct one, linked via the US Consulate in Vietnam , and it’s a fairly simple process. Many online third-party companies will advertise services to manage your application, but it isn’t necessary and will always cost more. It’s easy to do yourself.

There are a few key things to note within the application itself:

  • If you’ve ever entered Vietnam with a different passport (i.e. an old one), you’ll need to enter the old passport number.
  • Use your hotel info for the “Hosting Organization” section of the application, including its telephone number and address.
  • You’ll need to list your entry and exit checkpoints (the city/airport where you will be arriving and departing). It’s okay if the exit checkpoint is just a guess, but make sure the arrival checkpoint is the first city you’ll be flying into.
  • There are a couple of obscure questions that can seem intimidating, like occupation information. But just put what you can — it’s fine to just put “social media” or “blogger.”

The application process only takes a few minutes once you have your documents ready to go. Then, it’s just a waiting game to see if it’s approved. There’s always a chance you’ll have to re-apply with a different picture or more information, which makes it a good idea to apply at least a week in advance.

The website says that applications are processed within three days, but mine took only a few hours.

Showing your visa on entry

You should receive an email with your results within a few hours or days at the latest. The email comes with a registration code you’ll enter on the website to see your application status. It’s in Vietnamese and English and can look a little confusing at first glance, but just double check that your name and passport number are correct and you should be good to go.

You’ll want to print at least two copies – one to present at customs when you arrive, and an extra backup copy. Two backup copies can’t hurt.

At customs, you may be asked for proof of onward travel to show that you don’t plan on overstaying your visa. If you already have your return or onward flight booked, you’re fine. But it’s easy to get a temporary flight reservation for around $15 using Onward Ticket a day before you arrive.

Once the paperwork is finished, it’s finally time for the fun part – spending the next 90 days exploring Vietnam.

Where to base yourself in Vietnam

vietnam tourist visa 90 days

If the Vietnam visa application sounds easy and doable (which it is), the next thing to ask yourself is “Where should I set up shop?” That will depend on what you’re looking to get out of your trip and what kinds of amenities are important to you. Do you want to be in the heart of a busy city with an endless list of activities at your fingertips? Or maybe an idyllic, seaside village is more your speed. While the airports in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City are the largest and most-used for international travelers, that doesn’t mean you need to stay in a big city.

Most expats love Vietnam for its bottom-barrel prices ( 50 cents for a beer , anyone?) and tropical climate. But its rich culture, genuinely friendly locals, and the still-lingering, off-the-beaten-path feel of many destinations is what makes it my favorite country in the world.

Vietnam is ideal for digital nomads as the internet is incredibly fast and co-working spaces seem to be popping up by the minute. Pair that with the country’s already mind-bogglingly good coffee scene , and you have a match made in remote-work heaven.

Here are just a few of the best places to base yourself for three months of exploring Vietnam.

Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City , often still called “Saigon,” is the largest metropolis in Vietnam, and you’ll feel it as soon as you exit the airport. Crossing intersections can be a feat in itself, but despite its ever-humming energy, the city still secrets away some lesser-known (and less-busy) places to find space to yourself.

You’ll find a thriving expat community and plenty of places to stay for an extended time , an endless sea of delicious food and drink (including several craft breweries), and a mix of places to learn about the cities riveting, complicated, and tragic history. HCMC (as it’s often abbreviated) is broken up into districts, with most expats living in District Two or Seven.

Weather-wise, the city is in the Mekong River Delta and it stays balmy year-round, but especially in the summer. But it also means you’re close to some fascinating floating markets and smaller southern towns like Vung Tau.

Vietnam’s idyllic mountain town, Da Lat is beloved by many for its cooler climes and laid-back atmosphere. Nicknamed the City of Eternal Spring, Da Lat’ expat community is smaller than other cities, but that generally matches the population size of around 450,000 people.

Da Lat runs at a much slower pace than other parts of Vietnam and is an agricultural community at heart, with local wineries, and even a cidery nearby. Because it’s a bit more isolated, it’s more difficult to take quick day trips from Da Lat to the rest of the country. But the city makes up for it with natural tranquility, a close-knit community, and beautiful mountain scenery.

If the idea of living on the coast piques your interest, but you’re hesitant to live in a larger city, Nha Trang could be perfect. With a population of around 400,000 and a huge expat community, more and more people are flocking to Nha Trang for its idyllic, tropical coastline and year-round warmth. If you’re interested in beaches, snorkeling, and scuba diving, it’s an excellent choice (and has a lively nightlife and bar scene, too).

After staying in Da Nang for a month, I can firmly say that this is where I’d want to base myself if I was living in Vietnam for an extended period of time. In fact, were it not for the pesky 30-day rule of the old Vietnam visas, tourist visa, I would have stayed longer. Even the 90 days offered by the new Vietnam visa would just scratch the surface of what the city can offer.

I was surprised at the already steadfast expat community and Western comforts, like Adobo Mexican Grill – a Chipotle-esque restaurant I returned to over and over again when my husband and I were craving a taste of home. Da Nang is not a small city by any means, but it felt small in comparison to the heaving metropolises of Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi. Sprawling beaches, unique cultural sites, and a thriving food scene all contributed to my love of this city. Da Nang is in the center of the country and is close enough for day trips to cities like Hoi An and Hue.

As a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the (contested) birthplace of banh mi , Hoi An has a lot going for it as a base for digital nomads. It’s only half an hour south of Da Nang with an ancient and well-preserved old town full of quaint cafes and restaurants, interesting museums, and beautiful photo opportunities.

That being said, its small size coupled with the crowds can feel choking at times; Hoi An is one of the most popular tourist towns in the country. If it’s where you plan to spend all three months of your Vietnam visa window, consider finding accommodations on the outskirts of town and renting a motorbike or bicycle to get around. That’ll give you easy access to the town’s amenities while still preserving a little peace and quiet away from the crowds.

The ancient imperial city of Hue (pronounced “hway”) sits on the Perfume River and was once Vietnam’s capital. It’s a bit more industrial than other cities in the country, but retains a lot of old-world charm with an almost suburban feel. Cultural sites abound, including the historic Imperial Citadel and several mausoleums lining the river. Hue is also famous for its imperial cuisine, and you could spend a few days in Hue just exploring the thriving food scene for every meal.

While Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam, many people think Hanoi is even more chaotic. But lovers of all-things-cosmopolitan will feel right at home in the hustle and bustle, and it isn’t difficult to find co-working spaces and cafes with fast Wi-Fi, plus lots of great Airbnb rentals .

  • Big News! Vietnam approves extending e-visas to 90 days

From 15th August 2023, e-visas duration will be increased from 30 days to 90 days, valid for multiple entry to meet the demands of international tourists. This is a new policy approved by the National Assembly of Vietnam to facilitate international visitors to Vietnam.

Thereby, upon being granted an e-visa, a foreigner can enter and exit an unlimited number of times within 90 days, without having to go through procedures for obtaining a new visa.

Another good news! Citizens of countries that are unilaterally exempted from visas by Vietnam will be granted temporary residence for 45 days (up from 15 days) and can be considered for visa issuance and temporary residence extension according to regulations.

Can I Extend My Vietnam eVisa?

extend vietnam evisa

If you want to stay in Vietnam with an eVisa for longer than 90 days, you may be able to apply for an extended stay.

There are different ways to spend more time in Vietnam. Travelers can request a visa extension or renewal from within Vietnam, or depart the country and apply for another eVisa.

The difference between Vietnam visa extension and renewal is explained below. You can also find out how and when to apply for a new Vietnam eVisa instead of an extension.

What’s the Difference Between a Vietnam Visa Extension and a Visa Renewal?

There are 2 ways to extend the length of your stay in Vietnam without leaving the country : Vietnam visa extension and renewal.

Although both result in an extended stay in Vietnam, they are different procedures.

What is a Vietnam visa extension?

Vietnam visa extension is for foreigners who want to stay in Vietnam longer without applying for a new visa . You can apply for an extension of up to 1 month.

Your passport is stamped and credited with the extension time, but no new visa sticker is issued.

What is a Vietnam visa renewal?

Vietnam visa renewal is also for foreigners who wish to stay in Vietnam beyond their existing visa. Travelers who renew their visa get a new visa stamp and sticker in their passport.

Check with your nearest immigration office to make sure this service is available at your time of travel.

Requirements to Extend or Renew a Vietnam Visa

The requirements to extend or renew a Vietnam tourist visa are the same. You’ll need:

  • 1. A passport that’s valid for at least 6 months
  • 2. A completed NA5 form
  • 3. Payment of the extension or renewal fees

Travelers need a passport valid for at least 6 months and with at least 2 blank pages.

When should I get my Vietnam visa renewed or extended?

It’s illegal to overstay your visa. You must apply for an extension or renewal before your visa expires.

It usually takes around a week to get your Vietnamese visa extended or renewed. You should apply at least 7 business days before your visa expires to allow time for processing.

You cannot apply for a visa extension before you enter Vietnam.

Where Can I Apply for a Visa Extension in Vietnam?

To get a visa extension or renewal in Vietnam, you’ll need to visit an official immigration office.

Here, you can see the locations of some key immigration offices in different regions of Vietnam.

Business hours are generally 8 - 11.30 a.m. and 1.30 - 4 p.m. from Monday to Friday. Some offices also open on Saturday mornings.

How to Extend an eVisa from Outside Vietnam

Another option for travelers wishing to spend more time in Vietnam is to leave the country, apply for a new eVisa , and return using the new visa.

There are no limits on issued visas, and you do not have to spend a certain number of days outside the country before returning.

This may be a convenient option if you’re staying close to Vietnam’s borders with Cambodia , Laos, or Thailand and wish to visit other southeast Asian countries during your trip.

Before traveling, you’ll need to check the visa requirements for each country you wish to visit. Cambodia, Thailand, and Laos all have electronic visa applications.

Urgent eVisa renewals for Vietnam

Applying for a new eVisa from outside Vietnam is also a good option for travelers who have left it too late to apply for an extension .

It takes around 7 business days to process a visa extension at a Vietnamese Immigration Office. To avoid overstaying your original Vietnam visa, you can depart the country and reapply.

How to apply for a new eVisa for Vietnam

The Vietnam eVisa application can be completed from anywhere in the world from your smartphone or another electronic device.. You do not need to be in your home country to apply.

You must still meet Vietnam’s eVisa requirements to apply. Eligible travelers can repeat the 3-step process completed when making their original application:

  • Fill out the Vietnam eVisa application form
  • Pay the eVisa fees and submit the application
  • Receive the Vietnam eVisa by email

Vietnam eVisa processing is fast , most applicants receive their entry permit in a few days. On approval, you can return to Vietnam with the new visa.

Note : A visa does not guarantee entry . Vietnam border authorities review travel documents and have the right to grant or deny entry.

How Much Does a Vietnam Visa Extension Cost?

Immigration office fees can vary according to your nationality, and whether you wish to process an extension or renewal of your visa. Generally, visa extensions and renewals cost between USD 25 and USD 95.

The fees to apply for a new eVisa from outside Vietnam are the same as for the original application. You can pay for the eVisa securely online by debit or credit card.

Foreigners pleased as vietnam extends e-visa validity to 90 days.

Foreigners pleased as Vietnam extends e-visa validity to 90 days

"[The extension] is indeed very good news," said American Michael Burger.

He said allowing visitors to make multiple entries was "the most valuable" as he could travel to other ASEAN nations from Hanoi and HCMC, without having to apply for a new visa each time he returns to Vietnam.

"It's so great and I am planning to return to Vietnam this August," Burger added.

After months of eagerly waiting, the National Assembly approved on Saturday a government proposal to extend the validity of tourist e-visas from 30 to 90 days and allow visitors multiple entries, effective from August 15.

Pawel Dejmek from Poland plans to return to Vietnam in September or October and stay there for a long time after hearing that Vietnam had resumed its three-month e-visa policy.

"Before the pandemic, the e-visa was valid for 90 days already and it could be extended three times. So, I did 'visa run' once a year, not every month," he said.

Since Vietnam reopened its borders to foreign tourists in March 2022 and only allowed 30-day e-visa, many of his friends moved to Thailand because of being tired of border runs every month that cost them much time and money.

During his upcoming trip to Vietnam, Dejmek plans to stay in Mui Ne, famous for beach adventure activities along the central coast. He said he will look for a place for rent as he wants to open a bar and conduct other business activities.

"It's really good news. We've waited very long for Vietnam's three-month visa policy," he said.

Indian Pritesh Meta said a three-month visa would be perfect for those wishing to explore rural parts of northern Vietnam that are famous for the diverse culture of different ethnic minorities.

Meta visited Vietnam earlier this year and spent 28 days riding a motorbike from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City. Due to the restrictive visa, he had not been able to travel further north to areas where he wanted to learn more about ethnic minority groups with their distinctive culture.

However, many foreigners felt disappointed that Vietnam has not given visa exemptions to more countries.

Australian retiree Ken Rafter said he hopes Australia will be added to the list of countries eligible for a visa exemption soon as the number of Australian visitors to Vietnam has been rising sharply against pre-pandemic levels, driven by budget airfares.

Almost 82,000 Australians have taken trips to Vietnam in the first quarter of 2023, up 14.4% compared to 2019, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Burger also said he was upset American citizens were yet eligible for visa exemption, and hoped the Vietnamese government would expand the list of countries eligible for visa-free entry.

Dejmek felt "a little surprised" that Polish citizens had not yet been given visa-free entry and continues to wait for "new changes."

Earlier, the government announced Vietnam would consider unilaterally offering visa-free stays to citizens from more countries to attract international tourists, but no official decision has been made.

Vietnam now allows visa waivers for 25 countries , while Malaysia and Singapore allow 162 countries, the Philippines 157 countries and Thailand 65.

In the first five months of this year Vietnam received 4.6 million foreign visitors, more than half of the year's target of eight million but still only 63% of pre-pandemic levels.

May 19, 2023

HANOI — The Government emphasised that the extension of e-visa validity to 90 days, three times longer than the current 30 days, will be an open-door policy in attracting more foreigners to visit Việt Nam as well as seek investment and business opportunities, creating a driving force to promote the country’s socio-economic development.

The Government has recently reported to the National Assembly regarding the clarification of the National Assembly Standing Committee’s opinions on the amended Law on Foreigners’ Entry into, Exit from, Transit Through, and Residence in Việt Nam.

Previously, the National Assembly asked the Government to provide more specific arguments for the proposal to extend the validity of e-visas from 30 days to 90 days and the proposal to extend the duration of temporary residence permits at the border gates for visa-exempt unilateral entry visitors from 15 days to 45 days.

The Government stated that since the implementation of the e-visa pilot phase in 2017, the number of foreigners requesting e-visas has been increasing. However, due to the current short duration of 30 days for e-visas, it has not attracted more foreigners as expected.

In particular, foreigners who wish to have a longer stay for vacation, market research or investment opportunities in Việt Nam need relatively longer durations.

Therefore, the Government has proposed to extend the validity of e-visas to three months, valid for single or multiple entries, to meet the long-term vacation needs of international tourists.

​The new policy will provide favourable conditions for foreigners who want to conduct research, market surveys, and promote investment opportunities in Việt Nam, especially for those who need to visit multiple countries in the region and return to Việt Nam to evaluate and compare investment and business opportunities.

Extending the e-visa validity to three months is suitable for foreigners responsible for establishing commercial presence, service providers, and contract suppliers as committed to by Việt Nam in free trade agreements.

According to the Government, the issuance of e-visas for these cases is carried out through pre-approval of personnel. Therefore, compared to unilateral visa exemptions, this policy helps immigration authorities screen individuals who do not meet entry requirements or the requirements of management work.

Regarding the extension of the duration of temporary residence permits at the border gates for visa-exempt unilateral entry visitors from 15 days to 45 days, the Government states that through studies on travel trends, tourists from distant markets such as Europe often have vacations lasting more than 15 days or choose resort and cross-country tour programmes.

Currently, the tourism industry is focused on attracting beach vacationers and tourists with long-term stays to gradually compete with other countries in the region. Countries like Thailand and Singapore are implementing visa exemption policies with temporary residence permits of up to 45 days or 90 days.

Therefore, extending the unilateral visa exemption period to 45 days brings Việt Nam to the average level in the region and enhances the country’s competitiveness. It also provides even greater convenience for international tourists, helping them have more control over their time for long-term sightseeing and vacations in Việt Nam.

The report also provides further clarification on previous proposals regarding the submission of applications, reporting lost passports, and requesting passport restoration through electronic platforms. It suggests considering regulations on invalidating passports that have been unused for over 12 months but not collected, and encourages the use of electronic platforms for temporary residence declarations. — VNS

Visa on arrival vs. e-visa

Visitors to Vietnam have two options for obtaining a visa: visa on arrival or e-visa. While both options are convenient, there are some differences between them.

Vietnam Visa on arrival

Vietnam Visa on arrival allows visitors to obtain their visa upon arrival at one of Vietnam’s international airports. This option is only available for air travel and cannot be used for land or sea entry. To apply for a visa on arrival, you will need to obtain a visa approval letter from a travel agency or a visa service provider before your trip. Once you arrive in Vietnam, you will need to present this letter along with your passport, photos, and visa stamping fee to the immigration officer at the airport.

Vietnam E-visa

In terms of cost, e-visas are generally cheaper than visa on arrival, as there is no need to pay for a visa approval letter. However, if you are planning to stay in Vietnam for longer than 90 days, visa on arrival may be a better option, as it can be extended for up to 3 months.

Visa exemptions

The Difference Between Vietnam Visa Extension And Renewal

How To Extend Vietnam Visa 2024

What Is a Vietnam Visa Extension?

A Vietnam visa extension refers to the process of prolonging your stay in Vietnam beyond the expiration date of your current visa. This option is suitable for individuals who are already in Vietnam and wish to extend their stay without leaving the country. The extension allows you to continue your activities, whether it’s for tourism, business, or other purposes, without the need to apply for a new visa.

What Is a Vietnam Visa Renewal?

On the other hand, a Vietnam visa renewal involves obtaining a completely new visa to replace your current one. This option is typically chosen when your current visa has expired, or you need to change your visa type or duration. Unlike an extension, a renewal requires you to leave Vietnam and apply for a new visa from a Vietnamese embassy or consulate in another country.
