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

The process for obtaining a Vietnam visa for a Guatemalan citizen varies depending on the type of visa desired. This section will guide you through the steps to obtain a tourist visa and a business visa to Vietnam specifically for Guatemala citizens.

2.1 Obtaining a Tourist Visa for Vietnam for Guatemala Citizens

Before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Guatemalan citizens had two avenues to acquire a tourist visa to Vietnam:

  • Obtaining an embassy visa
  • Obtaining a visa on arrival

However, the landscape has significantly shifted post-Covid. To secure a tourist visa for Vietnam now, Guatemalan travelers must have sponsorship from a tour company registered in Vietnam. This company will handle the necessary paperwork and collaborate with the Vietnam Immigration Department to secure your Vietnam visa approval letter. Subsequently, you can get the visa stamped upon arrival at a Vietnamese airport and join the designated tour.

For those unable to locate such a tour company or seeking a more convenient option, we present the Vietnam tourist visa package.

Our Vietnam tourist visa package covers:

  • Vietnam visa approval letter for a tourist visa on arrival (also known as a landing visa) valid for up to 20 days, depending on your travel itinerary in Vietnam. Please inform us of your expected length of stay.
  • Visa stamping & Immigration fast-track services to expedite visa and immigration procedures at Vietnam airport quickly.

2.2 Obtaining a Business Visa for Vietnam for Guatemala Citizens

To apply for a business visa, you – as a citizen of Guatemala – are REQUIRED to have a sponsor company in Vietnam. The process involves two steps:

  • Step 1: Obtain a visa approval letter
    • In this step, your sponsor company will need to prepare the following documents:
      • Form NA2, to be completed online.
      • Form NA16

    • Subsequently, your sponsor company will submit these documents to the Vietnam Immigration Department, which will process the application within 7 – 10 working days upon receipt of the full valid documents.
    • If the application is approved, your sponsor company will receive a business visa approval letter, enabling you to obtain a business visa for Vietnam.
