The process of obtaining a Vietnam visa for citizens of Madagascar is contingent upon the desired visa type. This guide outlines the steps for obtaining both a tourist visa and a business visa for Vietnam.

2.1 Acquiring a Tourist Visa for Vietnam for Citizens of Madagascar

Before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, citizens of Madagascar had two avenues for securing a tourist visa to Vietnam:

  • Applying for an embassy visa.
  • Obtaining a visa on arrival.

However, in the current scenario, citizens of Madagascar seeking a tourist visa for Vietnam must have sponsorship from a registered tour company in Vietnam. This company will manage the paperwork, collaborate with the Vietnam Immigration Department to obtain the Vietnam visa approval letter, and facilitate visa stamping upon arrival at a Vietnam airport as part of their tour.

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

Our Vietnam tourist visa package encompasses:

  • 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 planned stay in Vietnam. Please inform us of your expected duration.
  • Visa stamping and immigration fast-track assistance to expedite the visa and immigration procedures at Vietnam airports.

Fees for this package are as follows:

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

Step 1: Acquiring a visa approval letter

  • In this step, the sponsor company must prepare specific documents, including Form NA2 (completed online), Form NA16, and certified business registration.
  • The sponsor company will submit these documents to the Vietnam Immigration Department, which will process the application within 7 – 10 working days upon receipt of all valid documents.
  • Upon approval, the sponsor company will receive a business visa approval letter, enabling you to obtain a business visa for Vietnam.

Step 2: Obtaining the business visa stamp

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