Apply Vietnam visa online (Vietnam e-visa) for Australian citizen

How to get a Vietnam visa if you are an Australian citizen

If you are an Australian citizen, you are required to apply for a visa. But don’t fret – it is getting a lot easier to apply for a visa these days and you can do it all from home. You just need your computer, passport number, bank account details, and that is basically it. Traveling to Vietnam has never been easier and more affordable!

A lot of Australians have found their way to the beautiful country of Vietnam, and it’s not hard to see why so many people choose to come here – there is much to see, much to do, and most importantly; much to eat. It’s difficult to not be charmed by this country.

But the only thing that needs to be taken care of before you go to Vietnam is obtaining a visa. There are three options for you to choose from, and it all depends on how long you want to stay in the country for. We would personally recommend at least 30 days in Vietnam, but even this amount of time will limit you a bit. The country is big and public transportation can be a bit tricky at times – it can take a long time for you to get from point A to point B.

So, you’re probably wondering what kind of visas you can get and how to get them? Let’s get started.

If you only wish to be in the country for 30 days or less, you can apply for an E-Visa. It is a very easy process and everything is done online. Important to note is that with this visa, you will only get a single entry. Here are the simple steps for you to follow in order to obtain your E-Visa:

If you wish to stay for longer than 30 days, you can apply for a Visa on Arrival. You can choose to stay between 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and even up to 12 months. This will enable you a bit more freedom and time to do what you want in the country. These are the simple steps to follow in order to obtain a Visa on Arrival:

1. Apply Online

Fill out the form and pay with Paypal or with your credit card

2. Get Visa Approval

You will get your visa approval via email. Download and print a copy of it in order to pick up your visa at your destination airport.

3. Pick up your Visa

At the landing visa desk, present your visa approval letter. Pay the stamp fee and get your visa stamped on your passport.

4. Checking in Vietnam

After your passport has been stamped, present it at the check-in desk and you are good to enter Vietnam.

The third option is to get a Visa through the embassy of Vietnam. You can either apply there or through the consulate of Vietnam in Australia. If you are not sure where exactly you can apply, please contact your embassy.

It really is that simple! We hope that you will enjoy your stay in the country and that you found this blog post helpful. Good luck and have fun!
