Navigating the Vietnam Visa Process for Citizens of Uruguay:

The process of obtaining a Vietnam visa for Uruguay citizens varies based on the chosen visa type, be it a tourist visa or a business visa. Detailed instructions are provided below.

1. Obtaining a Vietnam Tourist Visa for Uruguayans:

Before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Uruguayans had two options to secure a tourist visa:

  • Acquiring a tourist visa at the Vietnam embassy/consulate.
  • Obtaining a Vietnam visa online, including VISA ON ARRIVAL.

However, under the current circumstances, popular Uruguay passport holders are eligible for a 30-day single-entry tourist visa only. This visa is issued as a loose-leaf document and must be obtained before departure for Vietnam, commonly known as the Vietnam e-visa or electronic visa. Other types of tourist visas for Vietnam have not yet been reinstated.
