Question: Visa question (Elisabeth Chardon)
We are planning to visit Vietnam late December 2014, but do not know exactly on which date we will enter Vietnam. How should we state this on the visa application form? Should we give the earliest possible date? Is it permitted to enter Vietnam on another date than the one stated on the visa application?
Please advise. Thank you,
Dear Elisabeth Chardon,
Thank you for contacting us.
Your visa approval will be valid from the date of arrival that you provide us and lasts 1 month or 3 months depending on your visa type you want. If you entry Vietnam later but exit before expiration date on visa, it is definitely acceptable. However, if you travel Vietnam sooner, you are imposed a fine to change your date of arrival on your visa.
We therefore, suggest you apply visa once your schedule is fixed to avoid any changes might cause. Additonally you can use our express service of 8 or 4 working hours to get visa in a short time.
We hope it helps and should you need further support, feel free to contact us.
Best regards,Vietnam Visa Support Team
