How to get a tourist visa for Vietnam for Jamaican citizens?
Before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Jamaican citizens had two options to secure a tourist visa to Vietnam:
- Obtaining an embassy visa.
- Obtaining a visa on arrival.
However, the landscape has evolved significantly post-Covid. To obtain a tourist visa for Vietnam currently, Jamaican travelers must secure sponsorship from a tour company registered in Vietnam. This company will handle the necessary paperwork and collaborate with the Vietnam Immigration Department to obtain your Vietnam visa approval letter. Subsequently, you will receive the visa stamped upon arrival at the Vietnam airport and be able to join the arranged tour.
