Applying for Vietnam Visa: A Guide for Tibet Citizens

1. Tourist Visa Application: Before the pandemic, Tibet citizens had two avenues for acquiring a tourist visa to Vietnam:

  • Embassy visa
  • Visa on arrival

Due to changes post-Covid, obtaining a tourist visa now necessitates sponsorship from a registered Vietnamese tour company. This company facilitates the process, including obtaining the Vietnam visa approval letter. Travelers then receive the visa stamp upon arrival at a Vietnamese airport and proceed with the tour.

For those seeking a more convenient option, a Vietnam tourist visa package is available, covering:

  • Vietnam visa approval letter for a tourist visa on arrival.
  • 2-night accommodation at a 3* or 4* hotel in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City.
  • Visa stamping & Immigration fast-track service for expedited airport procedures.

Important details:

  • Package cost starts from US $320.
  • Visa approval letter validity may extend up to 25 days, accommodating travel plans.
  • Processing time for the visa approval letter is approximately 7 working days.
  • After the initial 2 hotel days, travelers are free to explore Vietnam.

2. Business Visa Application: Securing a business visa requires Tibet citizens to have a sponsor company in Vietnam. The process involves two key steps:

Step 1: Obtain a visa approval letter

  • The sponsor company prepares essential documents, including Form NA2 (completed online), Form NA16, and certified business registration.
  • Submission of these documents to the Vietnam Immigration Department initiates a 7-10 working day processing period.
  • Upon approval, the sponsor company receives a business visa approval letter, enabling the applicant to obtain a business visa for Vietnam.

Step 2: Obtain business visa stamp

  • Tibet citizens complete this step by obtaining a business visa stamp at the Vietnam embassy/consulate in their home country before departure for Vietnam.

Support is available for those needing assistance with a business visa approval letter, ensuring guidance from application initiation to successful arrival in Vietnam.
