  1. How to Secure a Vietnam Visa for Gibraltarian Citizens?

The application process for a Vietnam visa depends on the type desired by Gibraltarian citizens. This section will guide you through the steps for obtaining both tourist and business visas for Vietnam.

2.1 Obtaining a Tourist Visa for Vietnam for Gibraltarian Citizens

Before the onset of Covid, Gibraltarian citizens had two avenues for obtaining a tourist visa to Vietnam:

  • Embassy visa
  • Visa on arrival

Post-Covid, the process has evolved. Gibraltarian travelers now need sponsorship from a Vietnam-registered tour company. This company will handle the necessary paperwork, collaborate with the Vietnam Immigration Department to secure the visa approval letter, and facilitate visa stamping upon arrival at a Vietnamese airport as part of a tour package.

For those unable to find a suitable tour company, or seeking a more convenient option, a Vietnam tourist visa package is available. The package includes:

  • Vietnam visa approval letter for a tourist visa on arrival
  • 2 nights at a 3* or 4* hotel in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City
  • Visa stamping and Immigration fast-track services for a swift arrival process at Vietnam airports

Important notes:

  • Package cost starts from US $320.
  • Visa approval letter validity may extend up to 25 days, depending on the planned stay in Vietnam.
  • Processing time for the visa approval letter is approximately 7 working days.
  • Exploration of Vietnam is permissible after 2 days at the designated hotels.

2.2 Obtaining a Business Visa for Vietnam for Gibraltarian Citizens

To apply for a business visa, Gibraltarian citizens must have a sponsor company in Vietnam. The process involves two steps:

  • Step 1: Obtain a visa approval letter
    • Your sponsor company must complete Form NA2 online.
    • Submission of Form NA16 and certified business registration.
    • The Vietnam Immigration Department processes the application within 7 – 10 working days.
    • Upon approval, a business visa approval letter is issued.
  • Step 2: Obtain a business visa stamp
    • The business visa is stamped on your passport at the Vietnam embassy/consulate in your country before departure for Vietnam.
