What do Emiratis need to apply?

The application process of iVisa needs minimal effort. To help you with the application process, you only need to submit the documents listed below:

  • Valid passport – Emiratis should be able to get a passport easily. If you do have one, however, make sure that it is valid by taking a look at its expiry date. Also, it needs to be valid for at least another 6 months from your date of departure.

  • E-mail address – iVisa will send you a copy of the document in a PDF format. You will be asked to present it to the immigration office in Vietnam.

  • Accepted payments – to pay for the service, you can use a credit or debit card. You can pay through your Paypal account since it is a very common method nowadays.

As an addition to the documents already mentioned, extra documents are needed as well. They are the following:

  • Entry permit – this will be sent by iVisa via e-mail in PDF format. You just need to print it out before your departure.

  • Two photos – they need to measure 4x6 cm or 3x4 cm.

  • The original passport.

  • Additional fee – this applies only to people who opt for a visa on arrival. You will be able to pay it at the immigration office at the airport in Vietnam.

Processing time and visa cost

All Emiratis have different needs or budget so iVisa created three options for processing time. However, always remember that a quicker eVisa application requires higher payment. Below are your choices:

  • Standard processing – this option is useful for those who have a lot of time to prepare for their trip. This processing lasts 5 business days and the price for this option is $45 (or the equivalent of your country’s currency).

  • Rush processing – for 75$, the Rush processing will lessen the waiting time by one day. You will receive the Vietnam eVisa within 4 business days.

  • Super Rush processing – this option is perfect for people who have urgent matters. The eVisa will be ready in three business days for $105.

Vietnam visa on arrival

Aside from an approval letter, iVisa can also assist you with Visa on arrival. Depending on your selection, the application will be processed within 24, 12, and 3 hours, which is really fast. Here is what you can opt for:

  • Vietnam – Visa on arrival with a 30-day maximum stay and a single entry ($20, $50, $80 for each processing time)

  • Vietnam – Visa on arrival with a 30-day maximum stay and multiple entries ($30, 60$, $90 for each processing time)

How Emiratis can apply?

iVisa’s application form is a straightforward process because there are only three steps to be accomplished. Also, iVisa’s customer support is always ready 24/7 if you require assistance along the process:

  1. The first step will ask you to submit your general information and select a visa type. You must also choose the processing time.

  2. The second step consists of payment and revision. While payment can be quickly accomplished, revision should be done meticulously. Checking all the provided information is really important since corrections are not allowed once the application has completed the process.

  3. The last step includes a personal questionnaire and additional documents to submit. The last part depends on circumstances; however, you will be informed on what you need to upload. Once you finish, you click the submit button and that is all.
