1 year business visa on arrival


Hi, I'm a German citizen and interested in a 1 year business visa on arrival. Are they still available? Kind regards, Tobias


There is no 1 year business visa available at the moment, therefore the maximum you can apply online is a 3 month visa/multiple entry. If you wish to have a longer term business visa, we advise that you contact the embassy of Vietnam in Germany for procedures!

Do Germans need visa letter for 7 days travelling?


I have a Germany friend, she will come and stay in Vietnam 1 week. I know Germans don't need visa for travelling 15 days. But does she need a approval letter or a visa letter or something? Many thanks! (Jane)



German nationals are exempt from Vietnam visa for 15 days, therefore, your friend does not require to apply for an approval letter. Just make sure that her passport is valid for more than 6 months over the date of entry.

Have a good day!
