Visa costs

Vietnam stands for culinary highlights, majestic places and beautiful beaches. Here travelers will find an attractive mix of nature, culture and variety. Our goal is to make it as comfortable as possible for foreign travelers to visit this Southeast Asian pearl. To ensure that you can enjoy Vietnam in its full glory with its countless beaches and bays, tropical mountains, culinary bars or the unique flora and fauna, we offer you an all-inclusive service regarding your visa. We will take care of most of the work so that you can fully concentrate on your further travel preparations. Anyways, the visa is not for free, so we encourage you to inform yourself in advance about the Vietnam Visa costs involved. However, the Vietnamese system is relatively complex, the entry procedures accordingly lengthy. Our service offers you maximum comfort right after landing at a Vietnamese airport of your choice. For the visa itself or the Vietnam Visa costs incurred, it makes no difference at which airport you arrive. However, you should note that our agency only deals with visas issued to flight attendants. So if you arrive by boat or even by car, different rules and Vietnam Visa fees apply. More information about the Vietnam visa fee can be found below.

What’s special: As a visa agency, vietnam-immigrations.org focus is in particular on the Vietnamese online visa process, better known as the “visa on arrival”. It is a simplified option that does not require a visit to the local embassy or consulate. This also gives you the option of not investing too much time in the application process before your vacation. The Visa on Arrival is therefore a very practical and relaxed option. To what extent the Vietnam Visa costs will change, you can find out below.

Below you will find more information about the Vietnam visa fees and the special regulations that apply here.

Two types of Vietnam visa costs: Experience Vietnam up close – without lengthy application procedures!

Basically, you have to differentiate between two types of Vietnam Visa costs for the “visa on arrival”. On the one hand, mandatory visa approval fees and government stamps are due, and on the other hand, optional service fees may apply for various services. We will inform you about all possible costs so you will not surprisingly have to pay more than you expected. In the following, we will take a closer look at the Vietnam visa costs and explain what they are all about. Make sure to bring all the mandatory documents to make the Visa on Arrival process easier and smoother.

The passport

Online Visa Approval Letter Fee

These are the Vietnam visa costs that have to be paid by the applicant when submitting the online application. They are necessary for obtaining the permit through the Vietnam Immigration System and the so-called Visa Approval Letter for Legitimate Entry. The Visa Stamp Process at the airport in Vietnam is also included in the Vietnam Visa costs.

Vietnam Visa Stamping Fee

This is the Vietnam Visa fee payable in cash, it has to be paid by the passenger directly at the arrival airport. So make sure to carry enough cash for the Vietnam Visa fee with you. If necessary, there are also ATMs and exchange markets to withdraw and change money on site. The amount of Vietnam visa costs depends on the duration and the type of trip or entry:

  • 25 USD / person for up to 90 days (Single Entry)
  • 50 USD / person for travel between 30 and 90 days (Multiple Entries)
  • 95 USD / person for travel between 90 and 180 days (Multiple Entries)
  • 135 USD / person for 01-year Multiple Entries Visa (available only to US nationals)

The Vietnam visa costs are therefore graded according to the frequency and length of stay. A big recommendation on our part is definitely a long stay in Vietnam to enjoy the country in its full splendor and diversity. Additional Vietnam Visa fees must be paid by the applicant if additional services are required. More in the next paragraph.
