Vietnam Visa Cost 2024

Vietnam Visa Cost 2024

How much does a visa on arrival cost? You can use our calculator tool below to estimate the visa on arrival fee for Vietnam.

 

To get a visa on arrival you will need to pay for two fees: (1) visa letter service fee - payable at time of application and (2) stamping fee- payable when arriving at Vietnam's airport. The actual cost will depend on the type of visa you’re applying for.

  • The visa letter service fee varies depending on the type of visa you want to obtain and how fast you want to get the service delivered.
  • The stamping fee is fixed: As of now, it is $25 USD for single entry visa and $50 USD for multiple entry visa. Payment must be made in cash in USD or VND (Credit cards might not be accepted and there is no ATM machines within the custom area) and may change with advanced notice.

@Amanda Dawson, you cannot obtain a visa directly upon arrival at a Vietnam airport. Therefore, you will need to secure an approval letter for a visa-on-arrival, or alternatively, apply for an e-visa in advance.

Hi! I am a Canadian passport holder and will be traveling to Vietnam on January 6th (in 8 days) for a duration of 3 months. Which visa do you advise me to apply for? My final destination is Phu Quoc island and I read somewhere that some airports do no accept e-visas? However, I will first land in Ho Chi Minh where I will connect to another flight to Phu Quoc, so maybe I can sort out the visa there? Any information will be helpful, thank you in advance!

Are multi-entry E-visa's being accepted on Mekong river cruises?

@Deb, River crossing borders are not included in the eligible entry/exit points for an e-visa. However, since you have already received a visa stamp on your passport in Hanoi, it may be possible for you to re-enter Vietnam through a river cruise. We recommend that you contact your cruise operator directly for assistance, as they likely have experience with this matter.
