How to Obtain a Vietnam Visa for Hungarian Citizens

The process of obtaining a Vietnam visa for Hungarian passport holders varies depending on the type of visa sought, whether it’s a tourist visa or a business visa. Detailed instructions are provided below.

1. How to Obtain a Vietnam Tourist Visa for Hungarian Citizens

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Hungarian passport holders had up to two methods for acquiring a tourist visa, including:

  • Obtaining a tourist visa at the Vietnam embassy/consulate.
  • Obtaining a Vietnam visa online, including Visa on Arrival.

However, presently, Hungary passport holders can only obtain a 30-day single-entry tourist visa, issued as a loose-leaf visa. This must be obtained before departing for Vietnam (referred to as Vietnam e-visa or electronic visa). Other types of tourist visas for Vietnam have not yet resumed.

This type of tourist visa can be applied for online by the applicants themselves or their representatives and is then issued online by the Vietnam Immigration Department.

It typically takes 3 working days or longer to obtain this e-visa, depending on the volume of applications submitted to the Vietnam Immigration Department.

However, if you wish to ensure the visa for your trip to Vietnam, our service is here to assist. We guarantee visa issuance within:

  • 5-7 working days.
  • 4 working days.
  • Emergency.

The process is as follows:

  1. Complete our secure online visa application form and make payment.
  2. Receive the e-visa letter via your registered email within your requested processing time.

2. How to Obtain a Vietnam Business Visa for Hungarian Citizens
