  1. How to Secure a Vietnam Visa for Citizens of Cote d’Ivoire?

The process of obtaining a Vietnam visa for Cote d’Ivoire citizens varies based on the type of visa sought. This guide will walk you through the steps for obtaining both a tourist visa and a business visa to Vietnam.

2.1 How to Obtain a Tourist Visa for Vietnam for Citizens of Cote d’Ivoire?

Before the Covid era, citizens of Cote d’Ivoire had two avenues for obtaining a tourist visa to Vietnam:

  • Embassy visa
  • Visa on arrival

However, post-Covid, the process has evolved. To secure a tourist visa for Vietnam now, Cote d’Ivoire travelers must secure sponsorship from a registered tour company in Vietnam. This company will handle the necessary paperwork, collaborate with the Vietnam Immigration Department to secure your Vietnam visa approval letter, and facilitate visa stamping upon your arrival at a Vietnamese airport as part of their tour.

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

Our Vietnam tourist visa package includes:

  • 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 specify your expected length of stay).
  • Visa stamping & Immigration fast-track service to expedite visa and immigration procedures at Vietnam airports.
