The enchantment of Vietnam

Vietnam is known for its rugged, unspoiled terrain, its sparkling coastline, and the uniqueness of life in both its cities and villages. Indian tourists have a huge range of options, from enjoying a taste of the simple life near nature, to luxury experiences in Ho Chi Minh City. The infrastructure for tourism is more developed in Vietnam than in neighboring Cambodia or Thailand, as well, and continues to improve each year.

However, these many pluses mean that more and more travelers worldwide are catching on to what a special destination Vietnam has become. That means more crowded airports, seaports, and border crossings. You don’t want to spend your trip waiting in line for a passport stamp and background check – do you? Then again, you don’t want to have to spend a lot of time and energy applying for a traditional Embassy visa, either. Fortunately for Indian citizens, there’s a much better way to travel to Vietnam: a pre-approved eVisa.

Travel more comfortably and easily with an eVisa to Vietnam

Not long ago, the Vietnamese government introduced a new program for Indian citizens: the pre-approved eVisa entry option. An eVisa is a digital document that is electronically attached to your passport. The best part of having an eVisa is that it’s so simple and inexpensive to get before your trip. It also saves you a lot of time when entering Vietnam.
