How to get a Vietnam Visa if you are a US Citizen

Getting visas always seem to be a bit tricky. There are forms to fill out, embassies to reach out to and information that you need to attain. But never before has it been easier to apply for visas than now.

If you are a US citizen, you are required to apply for a visa. Luckily enough, it isn’t as difficult as it might sound like.

Vietnam is one of the most beautiful countries in Asia and visiting is a must. There is an abundance of things to do in the country and in order to get the most out of it, you need time. In order to be able to enter the country, you need to apply for a visa. Since January 2017, citizens from 40 countries (including USA) are eligible to apply for an E-Visa, which will allow you to stay in the country for 30 days, single entry. This applies for citizens of the United States of America.

However, many people feel like they want to stay for a longer period of time. We get it – we advise you to stay longer as well. Luckily, you can instead apply for a Visa on Arrival, which will allow you to stay for either 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and finally up to 12 months, giving you enough time to explore the country thoroughly.

When you apply for a “Visa on Arrival”, you need to have a visa approval letter from the Immigration Department of Vietnam, which will then allow you to pick up your visa on arrival at the International Airport of Vietnam. Apply online through our website or contact your travel agent in Vietnam and request a visa approval letter. When you arrive to the airport, you will be required to show the approval letter, and then you will get the visa stamped on your passport. Sounds quite easy, right?

However, if you live in the cities that have an embassy or consulate of Vietnam, there are other options. You can also get a visa by either applying for a visa at the consulate or embassy of Vietnam in the United States of America (USA). If you are not sure where exactly you can apply, contact your embassy.
