Securing a Vietnam Visa for Montenegro Citizens

The process for obtaining a Vietnam visa for Montenegro passport holders varies based on the chosen visa type—tourist or business. Detailed instructions are provided below.

  1. Acquiring a Vietnam Tourist Visa for Montenegro Citizens

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Montenegro citizens had two options for obtaining a tourist visa:

  • Apply at a Vietnam embassy/consulate.
  • Apply online for a Vietnam eVisa or Visa on arrival.

However, presently, holders of popular Montenegro passports can only obtain a 30-day single-entry tourist visa, commonly known as Vietnam eVisa or electronic visa. This visa must be acquired before departing for Vietnam and is applied for online by the applicants themselves or through a service provider in three simple steps:

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

Processing times are guaranteed in:

  • 5-7 working days
  • 4 working days
  • Emergency
  1. Obtaining a Vietnam Business Visa for Montenegro Citizens

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

Assistance with the business visa approval letter is available for those who need it.
