According to the Government’s Decree No. 07/2017 / ND-CP dated January 25, 2007 stipulating the order and procedures for pilot issuance of e-visas for foreigners entering Vietnam, on February 1st, 2017,
Vietnam officially tested the issuance of visa for foreigners to Vietnam with a period of 1 month for the purpose of tourism only.
The fee for issuing the e-visa is $25/guest and will not be refunded if the visa is not approved. Accordingly, the foreigner only needs to fill out the information required by the Vietnam Immigration Department on the online form and then pay the visa fee according to regulations. The result is that the foreigner will be issued an electronic visa by the Immigration Department of Vietnam and the electronic visa code will be sent via email to the registrant so that the foreigner can complete entry procedures in Vietnam.
At 28 international border gates of Vietnam, including airfreight and some foreign land border gates, when making entry procedures, the successful applicant will present passport and electronic visa code for entry and exit inspection and entry permit according to the law.
