e-Visa Vietnam 🇻🇳

Single or multiple inputs

Since August 15, 2023, citizens of 13 nationalities (including French, German, Spanish and Italian) can travel to Vietnam without a visa and stay for up to 45 days. After that, an e-visa is required for a stay of up to 90 days, for one or more entries into Vietnam.

To apply for an e-Visa, the passport must be valid for at least 1 month after the planned date of departure from Vietnam, as opposed to 6 months for the visa waiver.

To stay longer, you'll need to leave the country and apply for a new e-Visa, or take advantage of the visa waiver if eligible.

e-Visa holders can enter Vietnam via Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi or Danang airports, among others.

The Vietnamese government has reintroduced its visa waiver policy for stays of 45 days or less in the country for various nationalities, including French, German, Spanish and Italian nationals. To benefit from this visa waiver, you need a passport valid for at least 6 months after the end of your stay, and a ticket to leave Vietnam within 45 days. After 45 days in Vietnam, you will need to apply for a visa or e-visa.

A classic or electronic visa for Vietnam is valid for a maximum of 90 days. It is issued for a variety of travel purposes, including tourism, business and volunteer work. It is valid for a single or multiple entry into Vietnam, depending on the document chosen.
