There are 20 different types of Vietnam visas and new durations updated from 1 January 2015 under the Vietnam Law on Immigration: NG, LV, DN, NN DH, HN, PV, LD, DL, TT, VR, SQ. Tourist visa (visa DL) is the most popular Vietnam visa type. In addition, base on the length of stay and number of entry, the visa is divided into 1 month or 3 months, single or multiple entry visas.
1. Vietnam Tourist Visa
2. Vietnam Business Visa
Besides the Tourist visa, the Business visa is also the popular Vietnam visa type.
3. Diplomatic And Official Vietnam Visa
Note, VisaGoViet does not offering this Vietnam visa type.
4. Transit Visa
Vietnam is one of these countries that does not require any transit visas, provided you plan to stay at the airport zone. However, international airports like Cat Bi Or Da Nang are small and not the best place for a light sleeper. Therefore, if you have overnight transit, you may want to leave the airport and stay at a nearby hotel. In those cases, you will need a normal entry visa.
If you have booked a tour organized by a travel company in Vietnam, you can be granted a transit visa to visit the surrounding cities for a few days. This visa must accompany your flight ticket to third countries after leaving Vietnam and a detailed itinerary provided by a Vietnamese travel company. The stamp fee for this visa is the US $ 5 and the processing fee is the US $ 20 per visa.
In addition, based on length of stay and number of entries, it is classified into 1 month or 3 months of stay, single or multiple entries. Normally, a 1-month stay visa is a tourist visa or a 3-month stay is a business visa.
5. Single or Multiple Entry Visa
A single entry visa allows you to enter Vietnam once during its validity period, but multiple entry visas allow you to enter Vietnam multiple times (many times you can) during the validity period. For example, if you enter Vietnam right now, stay for a few days and leave Cambodia, when you re-enter Vietnam, you can still use your current Vietnam entry visa (within the validity period). Stamp fees are required to pay only at the first entry.
6. Code Sign For Vietnam Visas
