Vietnam business visa for Indian citizens

Basically, Vietnam visa categorized in 2 main types: tourist visa and business visa. India passport holders can apply for Vietnam business visa online at lower cost with simple procedures or apply a visa at the local Vietnam Embassy.

Business visa is granted to those who enter Vietnam for business purposes or who have an over 1 month trip in general. A business visa is normally valid for three months (single or multiple entry). The Indian businessmen need to get an official entry clearance from their sponsor, usually the employer if they apply for a visa at the Vietnam Embassy. If you do not have a business partner, employer, or other sponsor who can provide with an entry clearance, you can also apply for a business visa on arrival for a stay of up to 90 days.

From India, applicants will need to prepare some following paperwork to submit at the Vietnam Embassy or Consulate:

- Valid passport
- Sponsor invitation letter (not required if you apply for a visa on arrival)
- Completed application form
- Recent passport-sized photographs
- Visa fee

All these documents will be submitted to the Vietnam Embassy within 5-7 working days prior to departure date.
