How to apply Vietnam visa online
Vietnam visa requirements for Canadian passport holders are as follows:
- Tourist Visa for Vietnam:
- Vietnam E-Visa: Canadian citizens can apply for a Vietnam E-Visa online through the official website of the Vietnam Immigration Department. This E-Visa allows for a single-entry, multiple-entries stay of up to 90 days. This option is typically used and allows you’re arriving in Vietnam by any international gates checkpoint ( Airports-Seaport-Land Crossing)
- Visa on Arrival (VOA): Canadian citizens can apply for a Visa on Arrival (VOA) through authorized travel agencies. This option is typically used if you’re arriving in Vietnam by air. You will receive a visa approval letter after applying online through an agency, and upon arrival at one of Vietnam’s international airports, you’ll need to pay a visa stamping fee to get your visa stamped in your passport. The VOA allows for a single-entry stay of various durations (usually 30 days), so check the specific terms before applying.
- Business Visa for Vietnam:
- For business purposes, Canadian citizens should also follow a similar process as for tourist visas, which may include applying for an E-Visa or obtaining a Visa on Arrival. However, if you intend to work or engage in business activities in Vietnam, it is advisable to consult with the host company sponsorship in Vietnam to ensure that you have the appropriate visa type and documentation. Otherwise contact us for details.
- Vietnamese Embassy/Consulate: If you prefer a traditional visa application, you can apply for a visa directly through the Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate in Canada. Contact the nearest embassy or consulate for information on the application process, required documents, and fees.
Please note that visa requirements and processes can change over time. It’s crucial to verify the most up-to-date information on visa requirements and application procedures by contacting the nearest Vietnamese diplomatic mission in Canada or by visiting the official website of the Vietnam Immigration Department.
Additionally, ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your planned departure date from Vietnam. Always check the latest regulations and requirements before planning your trip to Vietnam.
