Vietnam tourist visa

Information on how to apply for tourist visas to Vietnam on arrival. Tourist visa validity can be 3 months maximum, except the tourist visa for United States citizens can be 1 year validity with 90 days stay each visit.

Tourist visa is the most used visa category that the foreigners apply for. Normally, tourist is valid for 30 to 90 days, and can be extended once you arrived in Vietnam. The tourist visa extension process is rather complicated that you should consider to apply for longer validity visa if necessary.

For those who have a business in Vietnam or expect to stay longer than 3 months, the 6 months (or 1 year) business visa is a good choice. The citizens of European, Asian, Oceania countries and some of African countries now can apply for 6 months or 1 year business visa easily without any sponsored documents required.
