  1. How to Secure a Vietnam Visa for Citizens of Bhutan?

The process of obtaining a Vietnam visa for Bhutanese citizens varies depending on the type of visa sought. The following sections provide guidance on acquiring a tourist visa and a business visa.

2.1 Getting a Tourist Visa for Vietnam for Bhutanese Citizens: Before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Bhutanese citizens had two avenues for obtaining a tourist visa for Vietnam, namely:

  • Applying for an embassy visa.
  • Opting for a visa on arrival.

However, due to post-Covid changes, Bhutanese travelers now require sponsorship from a registered tour company in Vietnam. This company will handle the paperwork, coordinate with the Vietnam Immigration Department to obtain the visa approval letter, and facilitate visa stamping upon arrival at the Vietnam airport as part of a guided tour.

For those seeking a more convenient alternative or facing difficulty finding a suitable tour company, our Vietnam tourist visa package offers a solution:

Our package includes:

  • A Vietnam visa approval letter for a tourist visa on arrival, valid for up to 20 days (depending on the travel itinerary).

2.2 Obtaining a Business Visa for Vietnam for Bhutanese Citizens: To apply for a business visa, Bhutanese citizens must have a sponsor company in Vietnam. The process involves two key steps:

  1. Step 1: Obtain a visa approval letter
    • The sponsor company prepares required documents, including Form NA2 (completed online), Form NA16, and certified business registration. These documents are submitted to the Vietnam Immigration Department, which processes the application within 5-7 working days.
    • If approved, the sponsor company receives a business visa approval letter, enabling the applicant to obtain a business visa for Vietnam.
  2. Step 2: Obtain the business visa stamp
    • The applicant receives a business visa stamp on their passport at the Vietnam embassy/consulate in their country before departing for Vietnam.

For those in need of assistance with a business visa approval letter, our support is available, guiding applicants through every step from the application initiation to successful visa acquisition upon arrival in Vietnam.
