How to Obtain a Vietnam Visa for Seychellois Citizens?

The procedure for obtaining a Vietnam visa for citizens of Seychelles varies depending on the type of visa they intend to obtain. In this article, we will provide step-by-step guidance on acquiring both tourist and business visas for Vietnam for Seychellois citizens.

1. Tourist Visa for Seychellois Citizens: Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Seychellois citizens had two options for obtaining a tourist visa for Vietnam, which included:

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

However, the requirements have evolved significantly in the post-COVID era. To acquire a tourist visa for Vietnam today, Seychellois travelers must secure sponsorship from a Vietnamese tour company that is officially registered. This company will facilitate the necessary paperwork and liaise with the Vietnam Immigration Department to obtain your Vietnam visa approval letter. Subsequently, you can have your visa stamped upon arrival at a Vietnamese airport and join the tour organized by the company.

In the event you are unable to find an eligible tour company or prefer a more convenient option, we offer a Vietnam tourist visa package for your convenience.

2. Business Visa for Seychellois Citizens:

To apply for a business visa, Seychellois citizens must have a sponsoring company in Vietnam. The process involves two essential steps, requiring coordination between you and your Vietnamese employer:

Step 1: Obtaining a Visa Approval Letter In this initial phase, your sponsoring company will be responsible for preparing the following documents:

  • Completion of Form NA2 online
  • Submission of Form NA16
  • Providing certified business registration documents

Your sponsoring company will then submit these documents to the Vietnam Immigration Department, which will process the application within 7 to 10 working days upon receiving all valid documents. If the application is approved, your sponsoring company will receive a business visa approval letter, enabling you to obtain a business visa for Vietnam.

Step 2: Visa Stamping for Business Purposes In this step, you will need to have your business visa stamped onto your passport at the Vietnamese embassy or consulate in your home country before your departure for Vietnam. If you and your company require assistance with a business visa approval letter for Vietnam, our support team is readily available to guide you through every step, ensuring your successful visa acquisition and arrival in Vietnam.
