How many methods exist for applying for a Vietnam visa for Swedish passport holders?

Currently, the sole avenue for Swedish citizens to secure a visa to Vietnam is by applying for a Vietnam e-visa.

Varieties of Vietnam E-visas Accessible to Swedish Citizens:

The available e-visa types may differ based on various criteria:

  • Regarding visa validity and number of entries:
    • 90 days single entry visa
    • 90 days multiple entry visa
  • Regarding the purpose of visit:
    • Tourist visa
    • Business visa

P/S: It is advisable not to apply for a 30-day visa for Vietnam, as you are entitled to a visa-free stay of up to 45 days in the country.

How long can Swedish citizens remain in Vietnam?

Swedish citizens can stay in Vietnam for up to 90 days, contingent upon visa validity. However, it’s crucial to note that:

  • Entry into Vietnam should not precede the arrival date granted on the visa.
  • Departure from Vietnam must not extend beyond the exit date granted on the visa, unless an extension has been successfully obtained. Overstaying the Vietnam visa may result in fines and severe penalties.

For instance, with a visa valid from September 1, 2023, to September 30, 2023, the holder can enter Vietnam on any day within this period and must depart by September 30, 2023, unless an extension has been granted.

What is the validity of a Vietnam e-visa?

A Vietnam e-visa is valid for up to 90 days at most. The exact validity is clearly stated on the visa letter, covering the granted entry date until the granted exit date. Vigilance is advised to avoid any overstays.
