Question: Question about visa date
I have a ticket to be arrived in HaNoi on the 1st for December. I might have to change my flight earlier (maybe 30th of Nov). Currently, I am not sure until yet. Can I apply for the Vietnam visa for arriving date on the 30th Nov even though my flight ticket is on the 1st of December? Is this ok?
Dear Mr Minh,
Thank you for contacting us.
As you've known, the visa approval will be valid from the date of arrival that you provide and lasts 1 month or 3 months depending on the visa type you want to apply. If you go to Vietnam later but exit right or before expiration date on visa, it is definitely acceptable. However if you arrive Vietnam sooner, a new visa letter is required.
Finally, as the result, you can apply for Vietnam for arriving date on 30 Nov even though your flight ticket is on 1 Dec. It is no problem at all on condition that you do not go to Vietnam earlier than 30 Nov.
We hope it helps and should you need further support, feel free to contact us.
