Frequently asked questions

Applying from China



I am a UK citizen currently living and working in China. At the end of the year I plan on travelling around Asia, including a visit to Vietnam.

I want to apply for a visa that allows me to stay for 3 months. Can I do this online? Or do I need to visit an embassy if I’m staying in Vietnam for longer than 30 days?

Thank you very much

Dear Francesca Neville,

If you are currently living in China, you can go to the embassy of Vietnam in China (see the above for the closest embassy to your location in China) to apply for a 3 month visa before you go. If you fly to Vietnam, you can also consider visa on arrival. Please see how it works here.

Have a good day!
