Vietnam recently launched an automatic visa extension for non-residents who traveled to Vietnam on or after March 1, 2020. This visa extension was created to avoid long ques at the immigration offices all over the country considering this can be a time-consuming task for many foreign nationals.
If you entered the country before this date, you may be considered for a visa extension if you provide proof that you have been stranded in Vietnam due to mandatory quarantine or other reasons beyond your control. In order to do this, you will have to show an exit letter from your country of origin’s Embassy or Consulate while you’re still in Vietnam. Whichever your current situation is, you will need to showcase your eVisa along with your Medical Declaration.
This doesn’t apply to you if -and only if- you are from one of Vietnam’s visa-exempt countries.
Keep in mind that a Vietnam eVisa is a pre-approval letter to receive a visa on arrival way faster. By digitally applying for this document, you will prevent wasting long hours and uncomfortably confusing situations at the airport.
As far as the Medical Declaration is concerned, we are talking about a document that will hold your travel records of the last 14 days prior to your trip, and where you will truthfully declare your health condition.
Thinking about your satisfaction, iVisa can help you process both your Vietnam eVisa on arrival and Medical Declaration effortlessly from the comfort of your own home today, bypassing a very long waiting.
