As same as the visa issued by the Vietnam Embassy or Consulates, an e-visa can be valid for 1 month and a visa on arrival can be valid from 1 month (tourist visa), 3 months (business visa). The processing fee for Vietnam e-visa or visa on arrival will be much cheaper than the visa issued by the Vietnam Embassy or Consulates. Lear more about Vietnam visa on arrival.
