How to Get Vietnam Visa for Latvia Citizens

The process of obtaining a Vietnam visa for Latvia passport holders depends on the type of visa they seek—either a tourist visa or a business visa. Detailed instructions for each are outlined below.

  1. How to Get a Vietnam Tourist Visa for Latvia Citizens

Previously, Latvia citizens had up to two methods to obtain a tourist visa, including:

  • Obtaining a tourist visa at the Vietnam embassy/consulate.
  • Applying for a Vietnam visa online, including Visa on Arrival (VOA).

However, due to current circumstances, Latvia passport holders can now acquire a 30-day single entry tourist visa, known as the Vietnam e-visa or electronic visa. This visa is issued in the form of a loose-leaf visa and must be obtained before departing for Vietnam. The other types of tourist visas have not been reinstated yet.

This particular tourist visa can be applied for online by the applicants themselves or through our service in three simple steps as follows:

  1. Complete our secure online visa application form and make the payment.
  2. Receive the e-visa letter delivered to your registered email within your requested processing time.
  3. Download your e-visa letter and present it to the Vietnam Immigration Officer to complete the entry into Vietnam.

Our processing time is guaranteed within:

  • 5-7 working days.
  • 4 working days.
  • Emergency.
  1. How to Get Vietnam Business Visa for Latvia Citizens

To apply for a business visa, Latvia citizens must have a sponsor company in Vietnam. The process involves two steps:

Step 1: Get a Visa Approval Letter

  • Your sponsor company will need to prepare the following documents:
    • Form NA2, completed online.
    • Form NA16.
    • Certified business registration.
  • Submit these documents to the Vietnam Immigration Department, which will process the application within 7–10 working days.
  • If approved, your sponsor company will receive a business visa approval letter, allowing you to obtain a business visa for Vietnam.

Step 2: Get 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.
