2.1 Tourist Visa for Cayman Islands Citizens:

  • Before the Covid pandemic, Cayman Islands citizens had two methods to obtain a tourist visa to Vietnam: embassy visa and visa on arrival.
  • Post-Covid, obtaining a tourist visa requires sponsorship from a registered tour company in Vietnam. This company handles the necessary paperwork, collaborates with the Vietnam Immigration Department to secure the visa approval letter, and the visa is stamped upon arrival at a Vietnamese airport.

    • Vietnam visa approval letter for a tourist visa on arrival.
    • 2 nights at a 3* or 4* hotel in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City.
    • Visa stamping & Immigration fast-track for quick airport procedures.

    • Visa approval letter validity: Up to 25 days, depending on the travel itinerary.
    • Processing time for the visa approval letter: Approximately 7 working days.
    • Free time to explore Vietnam after 2 days at the hotels.

2.2 Business Visa for Cayman Islands Citizens:

  • Step 1: Get a Visa Approval Letter
    • The sponsor company completes Form NA2 online.
