Learn More: eVisa
In February 2017, Vietnam launched the eVisa program to simplify the process of entering the country. Previously, travelers needed to get a Vietnam approval letter and receive a visa on arrival. Now citizens of 46 countries can apply online and get their eVisa electronically. The process is 100% online – no more embassy visits.
In addition to the eVisa, all travelers are required to present a Medical Declaration on arrival. You can choose to add this document when you apply for your eVisa with iVisa.com. You'll need to present both documents to officials on arrival to Vietnam.
