How to Apply for Vietnam Visa for Iraqi Citizens?

The process of obtaining a Vietnam visa for Iraqi citizens varies based on the type of visa sought. The steps for both tourist and business visas are outlined below.

2.1 How to Get a Tourist Visa for Vietnam for Iraqi Citizens

Before the Covid pandemic, Iraqi citizens had two options for obtaining a tourist visa to Vietnam, namely through an embassy visa or a visa on arrival. However, the post-Covid scenario necessitates Iraq travelers to have sponsorship from a tour company registered in Vietnam. This company will handle the paperwork, collaborate with the Vietnam Immigration Department to obtain the Vietnam visa approval letter, and upon arrival at a Vietnam airport, the visa will be stamped, allowing participation in the tour.

For those who cannot find such a tour company or prefer a more convenient option, a Vietnam tourist visa package is available. This package includes:

  • Vietnam visa approval letter for a tourist visa on arrival, valid for up to 20 days, depending on the planned stay in Vietnam.
  • Visa stamping and Immigration fast-track services for swift completion of visa and immigration procedures at Vietnam airport.

Fees for the tourist visa package:

Processing time
Fee (USD/pax)
7 – 10 working days

*Note: This fee does not include the US $25 stamping fee, payable in cash at the Vietnam airport to get the visa stamped.

2.2 How to Get a Business Visa for Vietnam for Iraqi Citizens

For Iraqi citizens applying for a business visa, having a sponsor company in Vietnam is mandatory. The process involves two steps:

Step 1: Obtain a Visa Approval Letter

  • Your sponsor company must prepare necessary documents, including Form NA2 (completed online), Form NA16, and a certified business registration.
  • Submit these documents to the Vietnam Immigration Department, which will process the application within 5 – 7 working days.
  • If the application is approved, your sponsor company will receive a business visa approval letter, enabling you to obtain a business visa for Vietnam.

Step 2: Obtain Business Visa Stamp

  • In this step, you will get a business visa stamped on your passport at the Vietnam embassy/consulate in your country before your departure for Vietnam.

Assistance is available for those needing help with a business visa approval letter to Vietnam. Support is provided throughout every step, from the initiation of the application to a successful arrival in Vietnam.
