- Original passport valid for at least six months remaining from the arrival date.
- Completed, signed, Vietnam visa application form available at the embassy office or its official website.
- One recent passport-sized color photo taken on white background.
- Visa approval letter from Immigration Department. It should be presented along with other documents while applying for a business visa by some embassies. In theory the letter needs to be obtained by a company in Vietnam. If you have no support from any company based in Vietnam, contact the consulate for further help. F.Y.I. Some embassies would even require this letter for a tourist visa. The Vietnamese embassy in Bangkok is one example.
- Vietnam visa fee varies depending on different types of visa and embassies.
The above information is the basic requirements for Vietnam visa application. Contact the embassy you are going to apply at for detailed information.
We suggest that consider the new launched 30 days e-visa. See more on Three Ways of Obtaining a Visa for Vietnam.

Once the embassy or consulate receives your complete application, it takes seven working days in the U.S and European countries, and three days in Southeast Asian countries. Expedited service for a quicker processing time is available with extra cost, and can be done in one working day.
