What is the Vietnamese e-visa?
Vietnam Electronic Visa, also known as Vietnam eVisa, is an official travel document issued by the Vietnam Immigration Department to foreign visitors. It gives foreigners permission to enter and exit Vietnam multiple times within 90 days. It is considered the most convenient way to obtain a visa for Vietnam before departure.
The procedures for obtaining an electronic visa are relatively simple. Foreigners do not need to visit Vietnamese embassies abroad or use intermediaries to apply for a visa. The issuance of e-visas involves pre-approval, which allows immigration authorities to screen ineligible persons, ensuring better administration.
Currently, Vietnamese e-visas issued by the Immigration Department through the electronic system are valid for single and multiple entry.
Vietnam currently grants e-visas to citizens of all countries and territories.
With this type of visa, one can enter Vietnam through one of 13 airports, 16 land border gates and 13 sea border gates. Please note that you can only enter the country through the port of entry you have chosen in your e-visa application and which is indicated on the document.
Currently, Vietnam's e-visa is valid for stays up to 90 days from the date of entry.
Price for eVisa to Vietnam
An eVisa application costs USD 25-50, which is paid through an electronic payment gateway. Commonly used payment methods are ATM card or Visa, Mastercard, JBC, Amex.
Note: Payment for the e-visa application is non-refundable, even if your visa application is rejected or unused (as regulated by the Immigration Department).

How to apply for Vietnamese Evisa?
Are you ready to apply for a visa to Vietnam? Non-Vietnamese foreigners can apply for a Vietnam e-visa by applying to a visa service provider, by contacting the Vietnam Immigration Department directly, or by applying themselves at the official Vietnam e-visa website:
This is the only official website of the Vietnam Immigration Department created through an electronic system. Other similar websites may be travel agency websites or fake websites. Click on the link and follow our step-by-step guide below. You can also visit the MFA for further details.
Phu Quoc is the only part of Vietnam where travelers from more than 80 countries can enter without a visa.
This exemption only applies if you do not leave the island. If you are planning to visit the mainland of Vietnam as well, you must enter Phu Quoc Island already with a visa, which you can apply for online or at the Vietnamese Embassy. Visa-free stay on the island is possible for a maximum of 30 days and is subject to a minimum passport validity of 6 months.
The visa-free regime on Phu Quoc was introduced in 2014 as part of the Vietnamese government's efforts to boost tourism and development on the island. This is because Phu Quoc is planned to be one of the main tourist destinations in Vietnam, offering not only beautiful surroundings but also modern infrastructure, services and entertainment.
