An Overview on Vietnam Visa
The Vietnamese government introduced the pilot electronic visa system from the 1st of February 2017. And, the following 81 countries are eligible for Vietnam eVisa. Thus, Vietnam tourist visa for Indian passport holders online is hassle-free.
Types of Vietnam tourist visas
The following are the types of Vietnam tourist visa:
a. Vietnam single-entry tourist visa
- 30 days Vietnam single-entry tourist visa
- Vietnam three months single-entry tourist visa
b. Vietnam multiple-entry tourist visa
- 30 days Vietnam multiple-entry tourist visa
- Vietnam three months multiple-entry tourist visa
The features of a single-entry tourist visa are quite similar to that of multiple-entry visa. However, the major difference lies in the Vietnamese visa entry type.
The Vietnam single-entry type visa allows you to enter Vietnam only once during the validity of this visa entry. On the contrary, the Vietnamese multiple-entry type visa, as the name suggests entitles you multiple entries before the expiry of the visa’s validity.
Vietnam three months tourist visa
For stay periods exceeding 30 days, we recommend the Vietnam 3 months single-entry visa and multiple-entry visas. Here, the major difference lies in the type of entry and the visa fee.
Unlike the 30 days single and multiple-entry Vietnamese tourist visas, the 3 months tourist visa has a validity of 90 days and grants a stay period of up to 85 continuous days.
The 3 months multiple-entry tourist visa is similar to the 3 months single-entry tourist visa. Needless to say, the key difference is in the entry type. With this visa, you may enter and exit Vietnam multiple times until the validity of the visa lasts.
Vietnam visa fees
Blinkvisa charges a flat fee on Vietnamese visa types. Needless to say, we provide a complete cashback on your visa fees. That is to say, for every visa applied, you get the whole visa fee including service charges and tax.
