Applying for Vietnam Visa: A Guide for Namibian Citizens

The process of obtaining a Vietnam visa for Namibian citizens depends on the type of visa desired. This guide outlines the steps for acquiring a tourist or business visa.

2.1 Tourist Visa for Namibian Citizens

Before the Covid era, Namibian citizens had two options for obtaining a tourist visa:

  • Embassy visa
  • Visa on arrival

However, post-Covid changes dictate that Namibian travelers seeking a tourist visa must now secure sponsorship from a registered tour company in Vietnam. This company will handle the paperwork, collaborate with the Vietnam Immigration Department, and obtain the Vietnam visa approval letter. Upon arrival at a Vietnamese airport, the visa will be stamped, allowing participation in the scheduled tour.
