The process for obtaining a Vietnam visa for Mali citizens varies based on the type of visa sought. Below, we outline the steps for obtaining both tourist and business visas:
2.1 Tourist Visa for Vietnam: Mali Citizens
Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Mali citizens had two options for obtaining a tourist visa to Vietnam:
- Embassy visa
- Visa on arrival
However, post-Covid, obtaining a tourist visa now requires sponsorship from a registered Vietnamese tour company. This company will handle the paperwork, collaborate with the Vietnam Immigration Department to secure the visa approval letter, and facilitate visa stamping upon arrival at the Vietnam airport as part of their tour package.
For those seeking a more convenient option, our Vietnam tourist visa package is available, covering:
- Vietnam visa approval letter for a tourist visa on arrival, valid for up to 20 days (depending on the travel itinerary).
- Visa stamping and Immigration fast-track services to expedite airport procedures.
Fees for our package:
- Processing time: 7–10 working days, Fee: $220 per person

(Note: The fee does not include the $25 stamping fee payable in cash at the Vietnam airport for visa stamping.)

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

- Submits the documents to the Vietnam Immigration Department, which processes the application within 7–10 working days.
