Hi. I’m an US passport holder. I have a 15 days business trip to Vietnam in this March. Is it possible for me to obtain a Vietnamese e-visa. Please advise. Willi. 

Dear Willi,

We are afraid that you cannot apply for a Vietnamese e-visa as this kind of visa does not support business trip, but leisure trips only.

The easiest way to get a 1-month business visa to Vietnam for US citizens is to get a visa on arrival. It requires you no travel at all and also does not put you in any risk of losing important documents if sending them by mail to the Vietnam embassy.

Full process of getting a 1-month Vietnam business visa is as follows:

  1. Complete the online Vietnam visa form; and pay for service fee;
  2. Get visa approval letter via email within certain period of time;
  3. Print out the letter, show it for departure and then show it at Vietnam airport together with passport and pay for stamping fee in cash to get visa stamped.

However, this kind of visa only works when you travel to Vietnam by air.

In case you do not travel to Vietnam by air, apply for your business visa at Vietnam embassy.
