But before you fly to Vietnam, as citizens of India, you are required to have a visa before entering the country. However, since there are so many Indian tourists, there shouldn’t be a problem applying for a visa. It’s important to note that from 2015, Indian nationality is categorized in a so called “difficult nationality group”, meaning there is usually a higher visa approval letter fee, return flight tickets requirements and you need to provide a passport copy. Still, the fees are not really high. If you wish to stay in Vietnam under 1 month (single and multiple basis are the same), the visa costs around 35 USD. For 3 months, single entry, it is around 45 USD, while if you wish a 3 month multiple entry, it will cost you around 65 USD.

2. Visa on Arrival – Apply online for pre-approval then pick up your visa on arrival at the airport of Vietnam

If you want to stay for more than 30 days or want a multiple-entry visa, there are two options for you: either you purchase a visa from the Vietnamese embassy or you arrange to get a Visa on Arrival by buying a visa approval letter online. If you choose the last option, you must travel to Vietnam by air.

The Visa on Arrival (VOA) is the easiest way and you can apply for this from anywhere in the world. All you need is your computer and internet. This is the most effective way to apply for a visa if you are going to Vietnam. What you need to do is fill out an Online Application Form, wait for your confirmation letter and you will normally receive an Approval Letter within 2 working days. When everything is done, don’t forget to print out the finalized document, bring it to the airport in Vietnam and get it stamped by one of the immigration officers.


3. Apply for a visa through the Vietnamese Embassy in India

The last option you have is to go to the Vietnamese Embassy in India. From there you will be instructed step by step on how to apply for a visa. This option is a bit more inconvenient for the person who lives far away from the embassy and needs the visa more quickly. The visa process can take a bit of a longer time than the Visa on Arrival, therefore we recommend that if you can apply for a VOA, this is the quickest and more convenient option.
