How to apply for Vietnam visa from Seychelles?

1. Seychelles overview

Seychelles, officially the Republic of Seychelles (French: R�publique des Seychelles; Creole: Repiblik Sesel), is an island country spanning an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, some 1,500 kilometres (932 mi) east of mainland Africa, northeast of the island of Madagascar.

As an dynamic Asian country, Vietnam welcome all the Seychellois citizens visit Vietnam, enjoy the breathtaking beautiful landscape, stride on a long beach, admire a peaceful land and see friendly people

The Seychelles passport holders are required a valid visa to enter Vietnam. Since there is no Vietnam Embassy in Seychelles, the Seychellois citizens must visit South Africa to apply for visa in the nearest Vietnam Embassy there. It costs much as the applicants have to take a long trip to visit the embassy and wait for 5 - 7 working days for the application to be completed.

It is more simple if you apply for Vietnam visa on arrival, which cost 25 USD per visa and 2 working days for its completion. In urgent cases, it can be done in just a few hours.

2. How Seychelles citizens apply for Vietnam visa?

Vietnam Immigration policy regulates that all Seychelles passport holders need to apply for Vietnam visa before entering the countries. In order to process the Vietnam visa, Seychelles citizens could have 2 options: apply Vietnam visa at the Vietnam Embassy or apply for visa on arrival.

This seems to be the easiest way to get your visa if you want to avoid the complicated procedures and bureaucracy at Vietnam Embassy. The entry visa will be stamped on your passport as you pass through our immigration checkpoint at the airport. This kind of visa is available for entering the country by air only.

3. Why should I apply online instead of going to the embassy?
