Vietnamese landing visa allows tourists to get visas at one of Vietnam’s international airports. Applicants must complete the visa approval letter of the landing visa before the trip.
Vietnam’s most popular visa application methods are E-visa and landing visa (visa on arrival). However, many friends told us they needed help understanding these two visas’ differences.
Presently, citizens of 80 countries, including Indians, can apply for Vietnamese e-visa online. Applicants can apply for an e-visa directly on the website of the Immigration Department, but please note that the processing time is about seven days, so if you apply there, please apply earlier.
From 2023 Vietnam has resumed processing all electronic and landing visas (Visa on arrival). Because of misunderstanding the meaning of the Vietnamese landing visa, many tourists don’t know that they need a visa approval letter before boarding if they want to pick the Landing visa when they arrive.
From 2022, Vietnam will resume the application of electronic visas to make it easier for foreign tourists to apply for Vietnamese visas. However, when applying for a Vietnamese e-visa online, the most important thing is to upload passport information pages and photos.
With the opening policy of tourism, the entry and exit procedures have changed accordingly. Vietnam has opened and resumed the application of electronic visas and landing visas.
