eVisa to Vietnam: Basic Information

In February 2017, the Vietnamese government introduced an electronic visa system, which greatly facilitated the organization of travel to Vietnam. Since then, all the formalities can be done without leaving home. All you have to do is submit an application form on our website and you will get the e-visa delivered by email within a maximum of 5 business days. An electronic visa significantly shortens all formalities and fees waiting for travelers after arriving in Vietnam. Moreover, by having an e-visa you are exempt from additional fees for the stamp. The entire visa issuing process can be done online so visit the embassy is not necessary. The e-visa allows you to enter Vietnam once and costs 79 Euro.
