Iran passport holders are eligible for Vietnam e-visa or not ?

Can I apply for Vietnam e-visa if I am citizens of Iran?

No, citizens of Iran are not eligible for Vietnam e-visa

From 01 Feb 2019, under Decision 17/2019/NĐ-CP of the Government of Vietnam, there are 80 countries which citizens of it are eligible to apply online for Vietnam e-visa (an e-visa is a single entry valid for staying 30 days). We checked but not found Iran national in this list, therefore, citizens of Iran should choose two options below to get a visa for Vietnam

Options for citizens of Iran getting a visa for Vietnam:

Should I apply for a visa at the embassy of Vietnam in Iran or apply online for pre-approval then pick up my visa on arrival at the airport of Vietnam ?

Vietnam visa on arrival office in Da Nang Int'l Airport, Vietnam

Vietnam visa on arrival office in Da Nang Int’l Airport, Vietnam

Of course making the visa application online from home or workplace is convenient for you. You can stay at home or office to fill the online application form then wait 2 working days to receive the visa approval letter via email, then print a copy of the visa approval letter to show for boarding and show on arrival (at the airport of Vietnam) to pick up your visa. Sound great !

However, visa on arrival Vietnam is now available at the International Airports of Vietnam only. You should go to the consulate or embassy of Vietnam to apply for a visa beforehand if you want to visit Vietnam via land crossing or by ship, by motorbike ….
