As a citizen of the United Arab Emirates, you should know that this document is mandatory to enter the country. It can be challenging to do a visa application online, but thanks to iVisa, that is a thing of the past.

Everything you need to know about the Vietnam Visa for UAE residents

The Vietnam eVisa is an electronic document that the country's government introduced in 2017. Travelers from the United Arab Emirates can obtain this document without having to visit a Vietnam embassy. This is not a business visa or a Vietnam visa on arrival, this is a tourist visa that you can apply for online through iVisa.

The Vietnam e-visa is valid for stays of up to 30 days after arrival from the date of entry and is a Multiple Entry document. If you wish to stay longer in Vietnam, you must apply for an extension at the Vietnam Immigration Department.

The Vietnam visa application process is relatively straightforward. First, fill out our secure, simple online form with your personal details and choose a processing time that suits your travel schedule. Then, once you've verified the information, pay the service fee to iVisa. Finally, attach the necessary documents and click 'submit' to apply for your Vietnam visa.

It is recommended to apply at least a few weeks before your trip to Vietnam. Currently, iVisa does not offer the Vietnam visa approval letter to obtain a visa on arrival in Vietnam.

Does everyone have to apply for this document to visit Vietnam?

The Vietnamese visa is available for citizens of approximately 80 countries worldwide, and the United Arab Emirates is one of them. You can also check our visa checker tool to double-check if you qualify to apply online with iVisa.

All passengers, including children, need to obtain their own Vietnam eVisa before departure. It is possible for children to apply for their visas individually or in a group application with their parents.

Required documents to apply for the Vietnam eVisa

According to the Vietnam government, citizens of the UAE need to present the following documents in order to apply for an eVisa and enter Vietnam:

  • Valid passport: You will need a passport valid for at least six months when traveling to Vietnam. You will also need two blank pages in your passport in order to get a visa stamp.
  • Recent passport photo: If you don‘t have a passport photo, you can use iVisa‘s digital photo service to obtain one.
  • Medical Insurance: You will need to buy medical or travel insurance that includes coverage for COVID-19 with a minimum coverage of USD 10,000.
  • Method of payment: You can use a credit or debit card to pay for the service fee to process your Vietnam Visa application.
  • Valid email address: To receive the receipt and confirmation of the eVisa.

  • Standard Processing Time: 15 daysUSD $94.99.
  • Rush Processing Time: 12 daysUSD $120.99.
  • Super Rush Processing Time: 10 daysUSD $224.99.
