Question: Vietnam Visa for South African
I am travelling to Vietnam for a conference in 3 weeks.
I would like to know what what the visa process is? I am a South African citizen.
Is there a quick online system that does not involve sending my passport away? If so, how long does it take? And what information do I need to provide?
Dear Samantha Hampton,
Thank you for contacting us.
We would like to confirm that South African passport holders are able to apply for Vietnam visa on arrival. You can either submit your visa application here with us, or kindly send us a scan of your passport, the exact type of visa you wish to apply (1 month multiple/single entry visa) as well as your date of arrival so that we could assist you with the application.
It normally takes up to 2 working days to process your visa application and once it is approved by Vietnam Immigration Department, a visa approval letter will be sent to you via email. With this letter, you will be able to fly to Vietnam and get your official visa stamped at any of our international airports.
We hope that the information above is helpful to you and let us know should you have any further concern.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Penny Nguyen (Ms.)
