Afterward, pay the visa fee which varies depending on the type of visa and duration.

Q

A quick question regarding VOA or E-Visa for a Belgium passport holder. Last year (2022) it was not possible to enter Vietnam twice within 1 month, even if you apply for two separate e-visas. Is this still the case now? If I would like to go to Dalat for a running event on 4 August, and leave Vietnam afterwards again on 6 or 7 August. But on 27 August I would like to return to Vietnam for another running event in Ninh Binh on 1/2 September. Is this possible? Can I apply for an e-visa for the first Dalat weekend, and then apply for an e-visa again for the Ninh Binh weekend, or is it not possible because less than 1 month between the 2 trips?
