In an exciting turn of events, Vietnam has recently announced a groundbreaking update to its e-visa scheme. Starting from August 15, 2023, citizens of Singapore will be eligible to apply for a 90-day e-visa to visit Vietnam. This new development comes as a relief to many Singaporeans who have long awaited the convenience and ease of obtaining a visa for their travel to Vietnam.
Bye-Bye Embassy Visits, Hello E-Visas!
Gone are the days when Singaporeans had to go through the hassle of visiting the Vietnamese embassy or consulate to apply for a visa. With the implementation of the 90-day e-visa system, citizens of Singapore can now apply for their visa from the comfort of their own homes. All they need to do is visit the official website and follow the simple application process. This not only saves precious time but also eliminates the need for unnecessary paperwork and in-person visits.
A Seamless Entry and Exit Experience
Vietnam has taken significant steps to ensure that the e-visa system is accessible to citizens of Singapore. With a total of 13 airports, 16 land border gates, and 13 sea border gates now open to e-visa holders, Singaporeans can enter and exit Vietnam hassle-free. This increased accessibility means that travelers can choose the most convenient point of entry and enjoy a seamless journey throughout their visit.
Cost and Processing Time
The cost of obtaining a Vietnam e-visa for citizens of Singapore is incredibly reasonable. A single-entry e-visa, valid for 90 days, can be obtained for just US$25. For those planning multiple trips to Vietnam within the 90-day timeframe, a multiple-entry e-visa is available for US$50. It’s important to note that the cost paid for the e-visa application is non-refundable, regardless of the application’s approval or denial. However, this minor fee is a small price to pay for the convenience and flexibility that the e-visa offers.
When it comes to processing time, Vietnam aims to provide a seamless experience. Under normal circumstances, the e-visa processing time is approximately 3 working days. However, during peak seasons or after holidays, it may take slightly longer. Despite this possibility, the overall efficiency of the system has been highly praised by travelers who have experienced its benefits first-hand.

From the bustling streets of Hanoi to the serene landscapes of Ha Long Bay, Vietnam offers a myriad of experiences that are sure to captivate any visitor.
