The costs of an e-visa Vietnam

The costs of an e-visa Vietnam

There are various visas issued by the Vietnamese Government. So it is possible ( until 30 June 2021) for British nationals who have a full ‘British passport’ to travel and enter Vietnam without a visa for a tourist or business trip up to 15 days. If you have another type of British nationality ( British national overseas ) you need a visa to enter Vietnam!

Starting from 2017 the Vietnamese Government demands an e-visa  for all British citizens to travel to Vietnam for visits up to 30 days. To obtain this e- visa you’ll have to meet the requirements set by the Vietnamese Government. You can fill out your Vietnam e- visa application form easily online through our website To fill in the e- visa application form takes just five minutes of your time . This single entry e- visa with a validity of 30 days is available from £ 36.95 per person. We accept payments by debit card, credit card and Paypal.

If you want to visit Vietnam longer than 30 days or if you want a multiple entry visa you’ll have to get a visa from the Vietnamese Embassy, Victoria Road 12-14, London W8-5rd, United Kingdom.

If you arrive at the island Phu Quoc first, you can choose the 15 day visa free Vietnam-wide visa or a visa free entry for up to 30 days. If you choose the 15 day visa you can visit the mainland as normal. But if you choose the 30 day visa you cann’t travel to the mainland because it’s only valid for the island. If you want to travel  elsewhere in Vietnam you need a visa from the Immigration office in Phu Quoc. If you visit another country in between and you return later to Vietnam you can apply for a 15 day visa again.

Visa on Arrival

The online application proces to obtain an e-visa is the replacement for the ' visa on arrival '. The Vietnamese Government let many warnings going out not to use this ' visa on arrival ' anymore. The Vietnamese Embassy cannot guarantee anymore that people with a ' visa on arrival ' will be able to continue their journey trouble-free.

The ‘visa on arrival’ is a letter which says that when you arrive in Vietnam you can buy a stamp that gives you the right to travel into Vietnam. This letter is the so-called  ‘approval letter’. You can buy this letter at a visa office. At the custom desk in Vietnam you have to pay the extra ‘stamping fee.

Here a overview of the ‘visa on arrivel ’ fees for United Kingdom citizins in US dollars:

  • Single entry    validity 30 days        Tourist $18    Business $70    Stamping fee $25
