- How to Apply for a Vietnam Visa for Citizens of Lesotho:
The process for obtaining a Vietnam visa for citizens of Lesotho depends on the type of visa they wish to obtain. In this guide, we will provide step-by-step instructions for acquiring a tourist visa and a business visa to Vietnam for Lesotho citizens.
2.1. How to Obtain a Tourist Visa for Vietnam for Citizens of Lesotho:
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Lesotho citizens had two methods to obtain a tourist visa to Vietnam, which included:
• Applying for an embassy visa.
• Applying for a visa on arrival.
However, the requirements have changed significantly post-COVID-19. To obtain a tourist visa for Vietnam today, Lesotho travelers must have sponsorship from a tour company registered in Vietnam. This company will prepare the necessary paperwork and collaborate with the Vietnam Immigration Department to secure your Vietnam visa approval letter. You will then receive the visa upon arrival at a Vietnam airport and join the company’s tour.
If you are unable to find such a tour company or seek a more convenient option, we offer the Vietnam Tourist Visa Package.
👉 Our Vietnam Tourist Visa Package includes:
◾ A Vietnam visa approval letter for a tourist visa on arrival (also known as a landing visa), which is valid for up to 20 days, depending on your travel itinerary in Vietnam. Please inform us of your expected length of stay in Vietnam. ◾ Visa stamping and immigration fast-track services to expedite the visa and immigration procedures at a Vietnam airport.
Here are the associated fees:
7 – 10 working days
Please note that this fee does not cover the US $25 stamping fee, which must be paid in cash at a Vietnam airport to have your visa stamped.
2.2. How to Obtain a Business Visa for Vietnam for Citizens of Lesotho:
To apply for a business visa, citizens of Lesotho are required to have a sponsoring company in Vietnam. The process involves two steps, and both you and your employer in Vietnam must follow these steps to obtain a business visa for Vietnam:
• Step 1: Obtaining a Visa Approval Letter
In this initial step, your sponsor company will need to prepare the following documents:
Form NA2, which must be completed online. Form NA16. Certified business registration documents.
Your sponsor company will then submit these documents to the Vietnam Immigration Department, which will process the application within 7-10 working days upon receipt of all valid documents. If the application is approved, your sponsor company will receive a business visa approval letter, which will enable you to obtain a business visa for Vietnam.
• Step 2: Obtaining a Business Visa Stamp
In this subsequent step, you will need to have a business visa stamped on your passport at the Vietnam embassy or consulate in your home country before your departure for Vietnam.
